A super-quick side dish, best made when the freshest green beans are available on the farmers market.
1 lb green beans
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp breadcrumbs
Heat a large skillet on medium-high. Add the olive oil. When the oil is very hot, toss in the washed and dried green beans. Spread out on the bottom of the pan and stir every 2 minutes. If you agitate the beans, they won't brown quickly.
Cook until it is slightly softened (very slightly). Remove from heat and add in the minced garlic. Mix with beans for 30 seconds, then throw in the breadcrumbs. Salt to taste.
