How Do You Cook Canned Green Beans?

How do you cook canned green beans

so as they taste like fresh beans just picked and cooked. I do not want that canned bean taste that we are all familiar with. There are some recipes I would like to try with green beans and I have a lot of canned green beans that I had some coupons for and ended up buying more than I need.

I did try to just put it in boiling water and cook it but the taste is nothing close to what I would like it to be. Please if anyone can help me with cooking canned green beans.

So I want to know how to cook canned green beans alone and in recipes that will amaze me. Can I put it in the microwave? or open it and put it in the microwave? Maybe if I drain the water and put fresh new water instead?

A friend of mine laughed at me as she never buys canned and she is telling me there is nothing I can do just boil it put some garlic in it and cook. But I refuse to believe that that's all there is to it.
