-Wash 1 pound of green beans.
-Take a handful of beans, than tap one end of the handful gently on the counter to align them.
-Slice off the first ¼ inch of the beans and than turn and tap the other side until those ends line up.
-Cut those ends off too, than cut the beans into 1½ inch lengths.
-Place an inch or 2 of water under the basket of a steamer in a pot with a tightly fitting lid.
-Steam the beans for about 5-7 minutes until they are just tender.
-Drain the water off then stir in about ¼ cup of cream cheese (chevre works well too).
Stir until well mixed, sprinkle with sea salt and serve warm.
