Number of Servings: 8


    1 1/2 lb Blue Lake or other green beans
    2 cloves of garlic, crushed
    1 1/2 Rapunzel vegan vegetable bouillon cubes
    about 3 oz water


Prep the beans by snapping off the stem end. French cut into 1 1/2-2" pieces.
Heat olive oil in a pan. Add garlic and saute for one minute. Add beans and saute, flipping or moving the beans around with a spatula so they don't burn.
Add bouillon and water, mashing the bouillon into the pan with the water. When water starts simmering, lower heat, cover and simmer until beans are tender but still have a little crunch.
