Frugal Recipe: Sauteed Garlic & Green Beans

If you are looking for a healthy but yummy vegetable dish I have an awesome one for you. My friend Charity introduced me to this Sauteed Garlic and Green Beans dish during Christmas break and I am hooked! Even my boys gobble this one up! Not only is this dish delicious, but it only has 3 ingredients! 


Fresh Green Beans. I used a bag of Green Beans from Publix that was only $1.39.

Fresh Garlic. The more the better for this dish. I actually used around 10 bulbs.

Olive Oil. You will need around 1/2 Tbsp. to sautee the garlic and beans.



Blanch the Green Beans for 3 minutes then place in a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. 

In the meantime, sautee the garlic and olive oil in a skillet just to infuse the oil with the garlic.

Drain the green beans and add them to the skillet with the garlic and olive oil.

Cook until tender and the garlic has a candied texture. 

Season with salt and pepper if desired for taste. I prefer a nice sea salt.

Serve and Enjoy! These are so delicious and good for you!
