I love to have her help me in the kitchen; it is a fantastic bonding experience, not to mention how much she is learning by working with me in the kitchen!
When you're ready, fill a deep side skillet halfway with water, and bring it up to a simmer. While you're waiting for your water to come up to a simmer, go ahead and mince up your garlic. You can also zest and juice your lemon, if you like. It is best to have all of your ingredients ready, because things move quickly once your beans are cooked.
Once your water is simmering, add your beans in, and let them cook for 5-7 minutes, then drain them off. While your beans are in the strainer, add your olive oil into the same pan you just cooked your beans in. Over medium heat, add in the garlic, lemon juice and zest. Cook the garlic for 2-3 minutes; you don't want the garlic to get too much color, but you do want to cook off the raw garlic flavor.
