          Directions
          1. Slice the top off of each head of garlic, then place them in a large pieces of individual tin foil. Wrap the bottom and sides, leaving the top open.
          2. Drizzle the olive oil over the top, then wrap the exposed portion with remaining tin foil.
          3. Place in an oven or toaster oven at 400°F for 30–35 minutes.
          4. Allow to cool. Once cooled, the garlic will be soft, like butter, and will easily squeeze out of the tough shells.
          5. While the garlic is cooling, microwave the green beans.
          6. Place green beans and about ½ cup water in a microwave-safe casserole dish.
          7. Place a lid on top, but do not seal it. (Tupperware also works.)
          8. Microwave on high for 5–8 minutes until crisp, but still tender in the middle.
          9. Drain the green beans.
          10. Add the roasted garlic cloves and salt.
          11. Place lid securely on top and shake until the garlic and salt are evenly dispersed all over the green beans. (They’ll look like they’re covered in a buttery sauce.) Enjoy ‘em hot!
