Chef notes

These garlicky, lemony green beans pack a ton of flavor for a dish with so few ingredients. Fried capers add a nice salty crunch (you'll want to sprinkle them on everything!) and a touch of vinegar gives the beans an addictive quality. That's more than I can say about most green beans. I think of these as an everyday side dish, but they'd also be a fresh alternative to Thanksgiving green bean casserole.

Technique tip: To make this in advance and save some cleanup, you can steam the green beans ahead of time, drain them and store them in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Then just sauté and you're ready to eat!

Swap option: You could also make this recipe with broccoli or broccoli rabe — any steamed green veggie that could benefit from a pop of flavor.
