In a large covered saucepan over medium-high
heat, heat oil, add garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes,
until garlic is fragrant. Add beans, stir to
coat with oil and garlic, cover and cook 5 minutes.
Stir again, lower heat to simmer, cover
and cook an additional 20 minutes, until beans
are completely tender. Can be eaten immediately
or at room temperature. Cover leftovers
and store in refrigerator.
