Sometimes we take for granted the little things in life, like really good green beans. I made these on Thanksgiving, and they we fantastic! Now, I’m not going to lie, adding bacon to your vegetables definitely takes them down on the healthy scale.. but life is about balance right?! Besides tasting amazing, these are really easy to throw together, I actually cooked the bacon and onion, took the pan off the heat, then just when dinner was about done put the pan back on medium heat, threw in the green beans and finished things up while they were cooking. Voilà! Fresh, crisp, yummy veggies that will not be taken for grated!
Fresh Green Beans with Bacon & Onion (Print Me)
Oil (I prefer olive or coconut)
~1 lb fresh green beans, washed & trimmed
3 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
Heat a large pan over medium heat, add just enough oil to have a light coat over the bottom of your pan, add chopped bacon and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant and releasing fat. Add onions and cook until soft and browning (~ 5 minutes or so). Add green beans and garlic, cover pan, and allow to cook, stirring occasionally, until done to your liking (~10-15 minutes).
