sautéed garlic green beans: easy 15-minute recipe

Jump to Recipe

You’re here because you heard I’ve got the green bean recipe to make you actually love eating your greens. Well, the rumors are true. I do. And I’ll keep this intro short because they’re that good.

I’m vegetarian and I’m on a mission to eat whole foods – especially my vegetables. I’ve never been a fan of veggies, mainly because I usually just cook the canned ones and, therefore, didn’t realize all the amazing possibilities.

Like sautéed garlic green beans. Whodathunk?!

This recipe is so simple, even the most beginners of chefs will have no problem. It’s super cheap (less than $5) and you probably already have two of the ingredients in your pantry.

This recipe is for 1 serving size; because sometimes you’re just not having a dinner party.
