  • Summary

    Cryo-blanching before sautéing softens these green beans in much the same way that par-cooking would, leaving them with a fresh, green flavor and a slight crunch. A sprinkling of golden-brown fried garlic is a nice touch on these or, well, pretty much any vegetable.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound (450g) trimmed green beans (see note)
    • For the Fried Garlic (optional):
    • 1 pound (450g) peeled whole garlic cloves
    • 2 cups (480ml) canola oil
    • Kosher salt
    • To Finish the Green Beans:
    • 1 tablespoon (15ml) extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling if desired
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
