Green Beans- Steamed with Olive Oil and Sea Salt

Sometimes it's the simplest things in life that are the best.

These green beans, for example, are so easy that I make them, or another veggie the exact same way, at least three times per week. You can easily substitute broccoli, cauliflower, or zucchini.

veggies to fit in your steamer basket
1-4 T good, real, local if possible olive oil
1/2-1 t. sea salt

Steam veggies until they are al dente.  For us, it used to take 12 minutes but with our new cooktop it only takes 7.  They should be bright in color but with an edge when you bite them.

Rinse in cool water.  This stops the cooking and also makes them cooler for little mouths.

Drizzle olive oil and sea salt over them.
