Garlic Green Beans

2 lb. fresh green beans
2 tbsp. butter
2 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 small onion (sliced)
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. chopped parsley

Wash the beans. Remove the ends and slice the beans. Place the beans in 1-inch salted water (1/2 tsp. salt to 1 cup water). Heat to boiling and reduce heat. Boil, uncovered for 5-7 minutes. Cover and boil until tender, 5-10 minutes; drain. Return the beans back to the saucepan; add in the butter, garlic, thyme, lemon juice, pepper and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the butter melts and the beans are hot, about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle on parsley and serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Soo we finally decided to experiment with this camera thing, check out the photo at the top…that’s a JKGF original! So no need to add the little disclaimer of “Picture source”…we got this one;-)
