Green Beans with Garlic Butter Sauce

Do you eat frozen beans? Try fresh beans, much tastier and better for your health. Green beans are a very healthy vegetable, and this dish is a welcome change from regular steamed green beans which you may well eat. You can also make this dish with fresh spinach instead of green beans. Watercress is another option and I have found watercress to be an excellent alternative. This dish is gluten-free and very tasty, it is an excellent side dish which goes well with a beef or chicken dish.


  •     1 tablespoon butter
  •     1 tablespoon olive oil
  •     4 to 5 cloves of fresh garlic – peeled and sliced
  •     2 (14.5 ounce) cans green beans, drained
  •     salt and pepper to taste
  •     1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter with olive oil; add garlic, and cook until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in green beans, and season with salt and pepper. Cook until beans are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
