Sauteed Green Beans


This is one of my favorite ways to prepare green beans. So simple! Plus I’m the only vegetable lover in our household so I will try anything to trick my family into eating their veggies! You can use fresh or frozen green beans, I’ve tried it both ways. I personally prefer how the frozen green beans cook up. Just dump them in the pan from the bag, no need to thaw out. DELICIOUS!!!


  • 12 oz bag of frozen whole green beans
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • kosher salt & pepper to taste

-Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat and add green beans.

-Using tongs, toss in oil until all ice is gone. Cover with lid.

-Cook until the green beans start to soften (approx. 5-7 minutes), stirring occasionally.

-Add garlic and continue cooking for 1-2 more minutes or until garlic starts to brown.

-Season with salt & pepper then transfer to plate with paper towel to drain excess grease.

Note: Sometimes I add onions to spruce it up. To do so just add sliced onions to skillet first and cook for a couple of minutes before adding beans.
