Garlic to taste (1 or 2 cloves of fresh garlic, finely minced)
2 tablespoons un-salted butter


  1. Heat the water and salt to a boil while prepping the potatoes.
  2. Cut large potatoes in half. Add the potatoes to the boiling water mixture, cover, and let cook until nearly done.
  3. Add the beans, return to a boil, and cook for about 7 minutes or until the beans are well-cooked but still bright green. Drain.
  4. Return ingredients to the pot and toss with garlic and butter.
