Green Bean Sauté

Every year we plant green beans in the garden and every year so many of them goes to waste because we get tired of eating plain old cooked beans. But not this year I have decided to try some new recipes so that those green beans end up on the dinner table for us to enjoy.

I found a simple green bean recipe that has a little more flavor, but doesn't take that much more time to make and the nice thing about it, it's healthy. We all enjoyed it so much that I thought I would share it just in case you have some green beans that are sitting in your garden waiting to be picked and you weren't quite sure what to do with them.

 Green Bean Sauté  (Adapted from
1 pound of fresh green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Cook green beans in boiling water for 10-12 minutes until barely fork tender.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet sauté onion and garlic until golden brown.
3. Stir in green beans salt and pepper. Heat through. Serve right away and enjoy!


  1. Those beans look so yummy, and I am quite sure you won't have any left over this year! I will keep it in mind for the spring when our beans here in Aus. will be starting again.

  2. That looks sooooo good!

  3. Simple food is the best! It looks delicious.

  4. Nice dish. I haven't planted green beans for the last few years for the same reason - too many all at once and I run out of idea for how to use them. Time to plant them again next year, I guess, and I'll definitely keep this in mind. Thanks.

  5. I like the idea that this green bean dish is simple and easy to prepare. Looks great and very tasty.
    Have a great week :)

  6. That looks good. We have masses of green beans as well. I have bottled some as plain bean and some I have curried. It means we also have beans for winter :-) Have a good week, Diane

  7. Another mouth-watering recipe! Your recipe today is quite simple. Guess I can cook it, hehe. Anyway, I love veggies like beans. It's perfect for health.

  8. oh thanks!! i needed this recipe...I will add the onions...thanks!!
