Sauteed green beans with onion – one of my favorite fresh green bean recipes. Also good with bacon or slivered almonds.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Fill a stockpot with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add green beans and 1 pinch salt; boil until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain beans in a colander and rinse with cold water. Blot dry using paper towels.
