Green Beans, Garlic French (P, TNT)
Source: Gourmet, December, 1999
Serves: 6

1 large head garlic
1-1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
3 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. water

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Tightly wrap garlic in foil and bake until very tender, about 1 hour. Cool the garlic and halve the head horizontally. Squeeze enough garlic from the cloves to measure 2 tablespoon. Halve the beans lengthwise. Cook in boiling salted water until crisp-tender, 6-8 minutes and drain.

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over moderately high heat and cook the garlic with water, stirring until a smooth paste. Add the beans and cook, stirring to coat, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
