Spicy Garlic Green Beans (page 148)
2 serving

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces green beans, ends trimmed
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Put the oil, curry powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and stir them together.  (If the coconut oil is solid, which it will be if your kitchen is a little cool, put it in a stainless steel mixing bowl and pop it in the oven for 30 to 60 seconds as the oven is warming.  The oil will melt very quickly.)

Add the beans and garlic and toss with the oil and spices until evenly coated.  Spread the beans in an even layer on a baking sheet.

Bake for 5 minutes, then turn the beans and bake for another 5 minutes, until slightly browned.  If you like your beans wilted, extend the cooking times to 10 minutes on each side.
