December Recipes: Garlic Green Beans


December Recipes: Garlic Green Beans

by Robyn Rychards

There’s something about the end of the year that makes me want green beans as a side dish, and here in the US, Green Bean Casserole seems to be the go-to dish when the weather gets cold. Which I totally understand because it’s delish! However, I came across a recipe for green beans that’s not only just as yummy, it’s super easy and the best part? My picky kids, who don’t all like the Green Bean Casserole, devour this green bean recipe. Give it a try. I’m curious to see if everyone else likes it as much as we do. But really, how can you go wrong with garlic and butter?


Garlic Green Beans


1 Tablespoon Butter

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

5 Cloves Garlic minced

2 14.5 oz cans Green Beans

Salt and Pepper to taste

1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese


Melt butter in a large skillet, then stir in olive oil and garlic. Saute over low heat until the garlic is slightly browned. Add the green beans and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook until beans are tender, about 5-10 minutes. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Voila! Delicious green beans!
