Easy Purple Beans

Easy Purple Beans

Ingredients : 

  • 6 cups purple beans
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper

Instructions :

  1. Wash your beans then snap the ends off of all the beans. You are taking off about 1/4-1/2 inch, depending on how long the skinny tails are. Discard the ends.
  2. Heat the olive oil and water a heavy bottom, large pan or dutch oven over medium heat.
  3. When the oil is hot, add the green beans. Stir to coat.
  4. Let them sit for 5 minutes or so. You should start to hear them pop.
  5. When you hear some popping, stir, then cover the pot and let them cook for 5-7 more minutes.
  6. Uncover, check doneness (the longer they cook, they less crisp they are).
  7. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  8. Serve warm and try not to eat all of them as you bring them to the table.
