Description

This green bean recipe is just the ticket when you need a simple vegetable side dish that’s a little “extra.” A garlic-and lemon-seasoned panko topping takes less than 5 minutes to make and adds a crunchy texture that takes green beans to a whole new level. Though the topping is quick, the breadcrumbs also keep nicely if you want to make them a day or few hours ahead. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.

    Directions

    1. Combine green beans, broth, lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large frying pan. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until green beans are tender-crisp, 5-7 minutes. Transfer green beans to a serving platter. Wipe out the frying pan.
    2. Melt butter in pan over medium heat and add garlic. Cook, stirring, until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add panko and lemon zest. Cook, stirring frequently, until panko is toasted, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and then sprinkle over the green beans.
