Savory Sautéed Green Beans

I’ve made sautéed green beans many times, but this time I wanted to update and make it keto friendly! Using fresh green beans is always my go-to, but you can also use frozen. I blanch the green beans in the beginning of the recipe so they don’t get mushy or too browned when they get sautéed. If you’re using frozen green beans, you would skip this step and microwave the beans until they are thawed then sauté.

For my recipe, I use garlic powder and onion powder but if you’d like to use fresh garlic or onion instead, I have the measurements here. You can mince 2 garlic cloves and dice 1/2 of a yellow onion and add them to the skillet at the same time you would add the garlic and onion powders. I also add a dash of red pepper flakes, but that is totally optional depending if you want these to be a little spicy. Hope you enjoy my recipe!

Trim and rinse your green beans and put in a deep skillet or pot with boiling water. Boil for 2-3 mins to blanch the beans.
Remove from pot and place beans in a medium size bowl with ice water.
Drain water out of deep skillet or pot then melt butter.
Add green beans back in pot, season with seasonings and sauté for about 5 mins or longer (depending on how browned you like them)
Yum! They are ready to be eaten!
