|1 pound green beans, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces||1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil|
|1 small clove garlic, minced, or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder||1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, (optional)|
|1/2 teaspoon kosher salt||Freshly ground pepper, to taste|
|1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt|
Place a medium bowl of ice water near the stove. Bring an inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and cook until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the beans to the ice water to cool. Remove from the ice water with a slotted spoon and let drain on a kitchen towel; blot dry with another towel.
If using fresh garlic, mash with salt using the back of a spoon until a paste forms. Whisk the garlic paste (or garlic powder and salt) with yogurt, oil, parsley (if using) and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Serve cold.
