Sauteed Garlic Green Beans

  • Author: Emily @ Zen & Spice


  • 34 cups fresh or frozen long green beans (I use Trader Joe’s frozen green beans)
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper


  1. Place the green beans in a large glass dish, cover halfway with water. Microwave for about 6 minutes, or until the beans are soft.
  2. Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the green beans and garlic.
  3. Let sautee for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to allow the green beans to turn brownish and caramelize. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove from heat and enjoy!
