I could not get to my computer fast enough to share this recipe for the green beans we just ate for dinner tonight! Sauteed green beans are a house favorite and I prepare them in a number of different ways. Lately I’ve been taking advantage of homemade bone broth to enhance our veggies. And WOW, can I tell you that the bone broth and a few caramelized onions made this dish super special! (Side note: I don’t think I’ve ever taken so many pictures of green beans!!)

How to get a rich taste from sauteed green beans
Veggies don’t need to be bland or boring. On the contrary, if you take a few minutes to build layers of flavor, your side dishes will steal the show! We build flavor with these sauteed green beans with garlic, caramelized onions and bone broth. Sound complicated? Not at all! This super flavorful side dish comes together in mere minutes. And the rich taste doesn’t come from butter, oil or fat. The sweetness of the onion combined with reduced bone broth creates a rich sauce that is irresistible!
Just follow these easy steps and you’re on the way to an oh-so-delicious side dish!
Add 1 Tbsp of olive oil to a large pan and saute garlic, onion, green beans, salt and pepper for 4-5 minutes.
Once the onions have caramelized a bit, add 1/4-1/3 cup Immune Boosting Bone Broth. Place a lid over the pan and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Remove the lid from the pan and turn up the heat. Allow all of the bone broth to absorb into the beans (about 3 minutes). Taste and add more salt/pepper if desired and toss with 1/4 tsp lemon zest. That’s it!
We ate these flavorful green beans with Honey Garlic Lemon Salmon. But you can enjoy this side dish with any protein of your choice. Go green for good health tonight!
