Un-Recipe Files – Simple Lemon Green Beans

I have been guilty of overcomplicating menus.  I think I am finally learning to focus on a few special items and keep the rest of the menu simple.  If I try to make everything fancy and special it rarely comes out the way I intended it, and I become a little overwhelmed.  These simple lemon green beans make a great side dish that is super easy to prepare.

I buy the pre-trimmed thin green beans (also called haricot vert) from the store and steam them until they are crisp tender.  I love to use my silicone steamer, which I wrote about on my ham, cheese, and asparagus croissant post. Once the green beans are cooked I toss them with a bit of olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, kosher salt, and freshly ground black pepper.  Fresh and delicious!
