Green Beans in Butter

Originally uploaded by Food Fanatic.
Sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a lot of butter in a dish. Fresh green beans from the farm are perfect for this.

Just snap the ends off and lay the beans in a skillet. Drop in a few pieces of butter, maybe a garlic clove or two and some onion. Drop the lid on and let the beans cook at a low temperature for a while. Just until they are al dente.

I do have to say, however, that if you get hooked on this, you can make it a bit healthier by using a flavored olive oil instead of butter.
