Game plan: If you blanch the beans in advance, you’ll need only a few minutes to cook them at serving time. Just refrigerate them after they’ve been boiled, cooled, and drained. Then bring them to room temperature and pat dry before finishing in the frying pan.
If you’re making these for our TV dinners story, you can cut the green beans into 2-inch pieces after blanching them to make them look more like their frozen-meal counterpart.
