Description

This is the way my grandmother cooked green beans from her vegetable garden. They’re so delicious! Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free, nut free, coconut free, Paleo, CKD, Low Potassium, Low Sodium.

Ingredients

  • 1 strip Bacon, Chopped (See Notes For Vegan Or Vegetarian)
  • 1 ounce, weight Yellow Onion, Diced (About 1/4 Cup)
  • ½ cups Kitchen Basics Original Chicken Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste With No Added Sugar
  • 8 ounces, weight Haricot Vert (Thin Green Beans), Cut In Half

Preparation

In a large skillet, fry chopped bacon until crispy. Transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Retain bacon grease in the skillet.

Add diced onion to the bacon grease, and fry over medium heat until onions are soft and beginning to turn golden. Stir frequently.

Add chicken stock and tomato paste to the skillet, and stir to mix the tomato paste well. Add green beans and cooked bacon pieces, and bring the sauce back to a boil. Reduce heat, cover the pan, and cook the beans until they are the desired tenderness. Stir every few minutes, and test for softness with a fork, keeping the beans covered until done.

Once the beans are soft, remove lid. If there is too much liquid, or if it is still very thin, keep cooking and stirring until the sauce thickens and will stick to the beans somewhat. Serve.

Notes:
• This side dish is so low in both carbs and calories that you could serve a double portion with your pre-cooked protein of choice added for a complete skillet meal for two.
• For a vegan or vegetarian version, omit bacon and use coconut oil to fry the onions.
• I get no kickback for products used in my recipes. Brand names are included to assure more accurate nutritional estimates. Nutrition information is based on My Fitness Pal’s online recipe analyzer.
