This recipe for sous vide green beans makes the perfect side dish for any meal. The beans are cooked in garlic-infused olive oil, which not only flavors the beans, but also helps to cook the beans more evenly; oil transfers heat from the water bath better than air. A simple garnish of lemon zest and lemon juice add bright acidity to this delicious dish. Use this recipe as a building block for other great green bean meals by adding new combinations of herbs and spices.
