Pan-Steamed Green Bean Gremolada

Author: Canadian Living

Gremolada, a trio of lemon, garlic and parsley, sparks up most green vegetables, particularly green beans. If you like, toss these with 2 tbsp (25 mL) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese at the end.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 cups green beans trimmed (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind

Method

In large deep skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat; add green beans, garlic, salt and pepper, tossing to coat.

Add 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium; steam until beans are tender-crisp and water is evaporated, about 8 minutes. Toss with parsley and lemon rind.
