Julia Child's String Beans

A SUPER SIMPLE RECIPE. This recipe is adapted from Julia Child’s recipe in Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

  • 1 lb of string beans, trimmed (mix and match; if the beans are Romano type, cut them into a few pieces)
  • 2 T butter
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 3 T chopped parsley
  • kosher salt and pepper

Blanch the string beans by bringing a large pot of water to a boil.  Salt the water generously.  Add the beans and cook until they’re just barely tender, about 4-5 minutes.  Drain.  (You can rinse the beans with cold water or dunk them in ice water, but I don’t find it worth the extra pans).

Toss the warm beans with the butter, lemon juice, and parsley.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve.
