Sautéed Green Beans
Hi Everyone, this Sautéed Green Beans Recipe exhibits my usual go-to flavors for a nice veggie sauté: olive oil, garlic, and soy sauce.
Guess what? They couldn’t be easier to make in your large skillet or wok.
When Are Green Beans in Season?
Green beans are available in the grocery store throughout the year and fresh, local green beans are available during the Summer months.
A seasonal recipe that can also be made year round
I made this recipe from the green beans mentioned in my recent Organic CSA Share Box Week 4 post.
This Sautéed Green Beans Recipe can be served as a side dish or put on top of a salad to dress it up. I could also see them used in eggs for a scramble.

You can leave out the soy sauce and garlic if you want more plain flavor in your greens beans. Alternately, you can add a drizzle of sesame oil and/or chili oil or red pepper flakes for some heat.
You can leave the green beans long or cut them up into 1-2 inch pieces like I did in the recipe photos. I suggest trimming the tough ends of the green beans off.
