Recipe Collection: Garlic Green Beans

admin March 22, 2012


I’ve never been a huge fan of green beans…unless they come in casserole form.

But these, I like. I make them occasionally, as a few family members don’t like them.  But other family members love them.  My 6-year-old is especially partial to them, and has made them for himself for breakfast a few times.  (Hey, I’m not complaining!)

These days, when we do make them, we double or triple or even quadruple the recipe.  They’re that popular…with about five of us.  They’re not bad reheated, either — sometimes, I pack them to take to work with me for lunch.

Best of all?  They’re simple.  Yet, they’re “fancy” enough to serve to guests, if you like.

Recipe Collection: Garlic Green Beans


  • 1/2 lb. green beans
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fat (lard, bacon grease, olive oil)
  • Sea salt to taste


Step 1: Put your green beans in a medium frying pan over medium heat.

Step 2: Add your garlic and oil.

Step 3: Saute until they begin to blister just a little bit.

Done!  Serve alongside meatloaf, or beef and potatoes, or whatever you like. 🙂  I’m partial to chicken marsala, myself!

How do you like your green beans?

This is the writings of:



  1. Those beans look frozen, have you made with fresh? Will they work?


  2. We make beans like that, except I use liquid aminos or tamari too. They’re incredible!


  3. I know from experience that either fresh or frozen green beans work with this cooking method — this is how we always cook ours except we add a healthy twist or two of freshly ground black pepper. YUM!

    Blessings, ~Lisa
