  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. Gayelord Hauser Natural Vegetable Broth or 1 vegetable bouillon
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
In large heavy saucepan, heat oil. Add garlic and beans, and saute over high heat to sear beans, stirring frequently so they do not burn. Add thyme, sea salt and pepper to taste. Add water and vegetable bouillon. Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until beans are tender when pierced with tip f sharp knife. Add more water, if necessary. Frozen beans will take only half the time. Add squeeze of lemon juice and toss well.
