These sautéed green beans with garlic are a quick and easy side dish that works well any time of the year!


  • 1 lb. green beans, ends trimmed
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Optional: Zested lemon and almond slices


  1. In a skillet on medium to high heat, melt the butter. Add garlic and green beans and toss to coat in butter.
  2. Allow beans to cook in skillet for 7-8 minutes or until bright green and tender yet crispy. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  3. (You can also boil your beans first for 3 minutes until they are bright in colour, and then add them to the pan to coat in garlic and butter for 1-2 minutes.)
  4. Season generously with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. If desired add zest of half a lemon and roughly chopped almonds.
  5. Enjoy!
