Sauteed Green Beans with Peppers

The 12 Days of Christmas: Annual Christmas Parade

My favorite way to eat green beans

Sauteed Green Beans with Peppers, serves 6

1lb fresh green beans
½ red bell pepper, diced and seeds removed
½ yellow bell pepper, diced and seeds removed
½ medium white onion, chopped
olive oil
salt & pepper

Trim the ends from the green beans while bringing a large pot to boil.  Blanche the beans by boiling them for four minutes and them immediately placing them in a ice water bath.  Allow the beans to cool completely.  Add the olive oil to a large sauté pan on medium-high heat.  Once the oil is hot, add the peppers and onions and cook until the onions are translucent.  Add the beans and sauté for 1-2 minutes – until beans are warm.
