We steam ours till they are done but still crisp then toss with a little salt and butter and a splash of rice wine vinegar.

I love the color to be bright so I blanch in boiling salted water about 3-4 min and then shock in iced water until cool. THen I dry on paper towels. When ready to eat I love them sauteed in olive oil and garlic or bacon fat and dry white wine or used cold in a salad. I think green beans and wax beans (their yellow cousin) are my fave veg and always have been from early childhood.

Personally.. I could care less about the color.. I want that old time full flavor of green beans that have cooked for hours with a good piece of ham. Just goes to show.. everyone has their own tastes..

I cut off the stem end but leave the little curly end intact, then cut the beans into 1-inch lengths, steam them until just tender (5 to 10 minutes -- taste one to be sure), and serve with butter, salt, and a little freshly ground black pepper.

Good fresh green beans, like most good fresh veggies, don't really need anything more.

Italian way -
cook fresh green beans in a pot of salted water, until cooked but crunchy, then saute in a saucepan with Extra virgin olive oil for few minutes, add fresh ground nutmeg, taste with herb of Provence salt , drizzle with good quality of Balsamic vinegar and serve immediately

We love to eat ours sauteed with onions and garlic. Heat a tad bit of olive oil in a skillet, saute beans for a few minutes. Add onions and saute until onions are caramelized. Add garlic and cook a bit making sure you don't burn the garlic. Of course add salt and pepper at the beginning.
