This is a simple dish that highlights the flavor of the beans. Grapeseed or peanut oil are best for sautéing at a high heat.
2 teaspoons grapeseed or peanut oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 pound yellow (wax) beans, trimmed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
In a wok, sauté garlic in oil over high heat. Add beans and salt and continue to sauté until beans are crisp tender – 5 to 10 minutes.
