Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Dressing

Green Beans with Creamy Garlic Dressing

Inspired by a Lebanese pasta dish, we toss steamed green beans with garlicky yogurt for an easy side dish. Try it with roast lamb.

Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small clov garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, (optional)
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place a medium bowl of ice water near the stove. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the beans to the ice water to cool. Remove from the ice water with a slotted spoon and let drain on a kitchen towel; blot dry with another towel.

Step 2

If using fresh garlic, mash with salt using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk the garlic paste (or garlic powder and salt) with yogurt, oil, parsley (if using) and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Serve cold.
