Garlicky Green Beans


This healthy, family-friendly green bean recipe is delicious! The soy-garlic combination packs so major flavor that will change the way you think about this green vegetable!

I grew up thinking that canned green beans were better than fresh.

To be honest, I still have a hard time with fresh green beans unless they are seasoned up or cooked in a delicious way. (Probably why I’m a fan of this Bacon Wrapped Green Bean recipe, as well.) This is why I am so excited to share this super easy recipe. My kids were holding tight to their green bean bias but my husband, a self-proclaimed “not a green bean guy”, really liked them!

The garlic-soy glaze gives some serious flavor that I was loving. At first I was afraid of those little garlic chunks, thinking they’d be too much flavor but after getting a taste of a few, I found myself digging around for them. I’m so excited for you guys to try this one!!

Start with some fresh green beans and snap off the ends. This is a good task for your kids if you’re wanting them to help with some dinner prep, by the way.

Heat up a large skillet and add enough oil to coat the bottom. I used olive oil but it got a little smokey since the heat needs to be high. Another option would be avocado oil. Vegetable oil will work but it’s a bit more processed. It’s up to you!

After the oil is heated up, add in your garlic and give it a stir for a minute or so.

SMELLS. SO. GOOD.

Toss in the green beans and stir-fry them in that garlic-goodness for 3-4 minutes.

When they are starting to get a bit tender, drizzle the soy sauce over it all.

You are officially done.
