Things that come out of microwaves usually aren't fat-free, aren't bursting with freshness, and often can't compete on taste with foods coming out of the oven. Not so with this recipe: the green beans are perfectly cooked with just the right amount of crunch and the Garlic Pepper Rub adds a sharpness that will have you reaching for more.


  • 4 cups green beans
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Gustus Vitae Condiments' Garlic Pepper Rub


  1. Wash green beans and cut off ends.
  2. Place green beans in a microwave-safe container, pour in water.
  3. Cover container with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes.
  4. Taking care with the hot container, remove from microwave, strain, and place in a large bowl.
  5. Add Garlic Pepper Rub and stir: the residual moisture will cause the Rub to stick to beans.
  6. Serve.
