Ronnie’s Favorite String Beans


Ronnie Shushan, the designer of this cookbook and a writer who is working on a book about the creation of the Spiral House, gave us this recipe because we share her love of garlic. A staple of both the kitchen pantry and the herbal medicine chest, garlic is reputed to contain a little bit of just about everything our bodies require. Long, slow cooking — in the skillet here or oven-roasted — mellows garlic’s pungency and gives it a creaminess that makes it spread divinely on a good bread.


8 cloves
Garlic (peeled, at least 2 cloves per serving, more if you are a garlic lover)
Olive Oil (to taste)
1 pound
Green Beans ( blanched or not, depending on size and personal preference)
1⁄2 cup
Flat Leaf Parsley (chopped)
Coarse Salt (to taste)
Crusty Bread (optional)
