  1. Preheat large deep non-stick skillet on medium heat; add oil, water and green beans. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until green beans are tender, stirring every 5 minutes. If green beans start burning, add a splash of water.
  2. Turn off heat (I also move skillet to next cool burner to prevent yogurt from curdling) and add salt, ground black pepper and garlic; stir to combine. Add Greek yogurt and stir; adjust seasoning to taste (mainly garlic). Serve hot or cold, both way are delicious!
