Parmesan Garlic Green Beans and Cauliflower

7 Aug


This was a different combination for me, but in a good way.  When I was deciding what to make for dinner one night, Cyndi at Daily Cynema had posted what she was making, Pan Seared Cod and Garlic Green Beans, which inspired me to make this with our dinner that night (I wish I could recall what main dish I made to go with this, but it was a couple weeks ago and my memory is failing me!).  Anyway, I threw in the cauliflower with the green beans because it needed to be eaten soon, and it turned out to be a nice combination.     You could do this with just one of either vegetable too.


Parmesan Garlic Green Beans and Cauliflower

What you need:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb fresh green beans
1 cup cauliflower florets
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

How to make it:

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat.  Add the garlic, green beans and cauliflower, cooking and stirring in the oil until they are browned.  Stir in lemon juice, sugar, salt, and black pepper.  Cook another 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and serve warm.
