Steamed Green Beans + Garlic

Steamed vegetables are my favorite side to any meal! Recently, I have been making sure I eat 4 servings (1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked) of vegetables every day. Adding garlic is a quick and easy way to spice up those veggies! My favorite vegetable is green beans. I really don’t know why, but I just love them so much. They’re the easiest vegetable to flavor in my opinion. Steamed vegetables are so easy to make and always taste so good! You can do this recipe with any vegetable you like! Broccoli and garlic would be so tasty as well! Today, I am going to share how I prepare my steamed green beans + garlic!
