What a great way to eat your green beans!

Green beans are a wonderful source of vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, magnesium, potassium, folate and iron. This dish give the beans a sweet and garlic flavor that is complimented by buttery pecans. I like to cook the beans until tender with a slight crisp.
