Elegant Green Beans

I am a super fan of green beans, and I always have been. Unfortunately in my earlier years that meant I ate lots of canned green beans (shudder). I have since reformed my ways and tonight, I found the tastiest application yet for fresh and amazingly tasty green beans. Another plus is that they look super fancy and will totally impress people. I ate them earlier with grilled lamb steak and a delectable horseradish coconut cream and highly recommend it!

Yield: 2-4 servings, depending on size

Time: 10 minutes prep, 10 minutes cook time


  • 1lb of fresh green beans (can be frozen ahead of time)
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • ½ cup sliced onion (about ¼ of an onion)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp avocado (or other compliant) oil
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar


Clean and cut the ends off fresh green beans, chop in half if desired. Dice garlic and slice onion.

Heat a skillet on the stove to medium and add all ingredients. Sautee for 5-10 minutes until desired consistency is reached, stirring occasionally. Plate and serve.
