Green Beans

Sick of plain green beans? Yeah, me too...
 I tried a few varieties of new flavors and found four that were just right. I opted for Mexican flare when I made them which lends itself to an especially pretty side dish. All of the seasoning options stray just far enough from the ordinary to bring new life to a worn-out standby.

2 6oz bags French green beans
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp minced garlic

1/2 tsp chili powder
juice from 1/2 lime

1 tbsp white wine
1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp curry powder

1/4 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp soy sauce

Cook green beans according to package directions (I steam mine in the microwave for 4-5 minutes)
Sauté garlic in olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat until barely golden
Add beans to sauté pan and add the seasoning of your choice, gently stir until all green beans are evenly coated
