Description

Possibly my favorite side ever: delicious and healthy Garlic Parmesan Green Beans.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Fresh Green Beans, Stems Removed
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese

Preparation

Steam green beans until slightly tender, about 6-8 minutes.

Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add garlic and cook 1-2 minutes. Transfer steamed green beans to the melted butter and garlic. Toss to coat green beans evenly and continue to saute for approximately 5 minutes over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and sprinkle grated parmesan. Toss once again until parmesan is melted, approximately 1 minute.

Enjoy!

I made this for my family for Thanksgiving and I don’t think I have ever gotten more compliments before. They were absolutely divine! And the smell of the garlic and parmesan was out of this world. I have to admit that I ate some right out of the pan when no one was looking. These are defintely a new favorite for me.

I am not one to be negative but this recipe needed help…I followed the directions to a T and came up with VERY bland green beans. So, since I didn’t want to waste them, I added beef broth and reduced it. I added about 8 cloves of garlic, a tbsp of kosher salt, olive oil and simmered it for about 10 minutes and added in sauted mushrooms too.

Amazing! I think my husband got three servings of these the first time I made them!

These were delicious! The green beans at my grocery store didn’t look very fresh, so I used good quality frozen green beans instead, steamed them, and followed the recipe as described. Yum! I can’t wait to try this recipe with fresh green beans.
