  • Italian green beans are really simple to prepare, but they have an incredible flavor that is to die for. This may become your new favorite way to prepare green beans.
  • This dish is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, low-carb, keto, vegan, and vegetarian. WHOA! What a crowd-pleasing dish!
  • They’re quite nutritious! Green beans are high in critical vitamins such as A, C, and K. They’re low in calories, low carbs, and high in fiber per serving. They’re also high in iron, potassium, and magnesium, as well as chlorophyll, folic acid, and folate.

Important Ingredients

Beans, green – However, fresh is preferred. The beautiful thing about frozen green beans is that they’re frozen when they’re at their best, so they’re almost identical to fresh green beans.

When you freeze vegetables as soon as they’re gathered, you’re effectively putting a “hold” on their freshness and deliciousness until you’re ready to prepare them.

Garlic — To achieve the most flavor, choose a really nice, really fresh garlic. Increase the amount of garlic you use if you want.

Italian seasoning – This dish’s MAKER is savory and flavorful Italian seasoning.

The most common ingredients in Italian seasoning are rosemary, thyme, oregano, and basil, but other spices are also added. If you like, you can increase the quantity of seasoning in your green beans. But don’t go overboard!

Chef’s Advice

  • Grate a little fresh Parmesan cheese over the green beans just before serving to further elevate this recipe. The Parmesan complements the Italian taste on the green beans beautifully, and you don’t need much! Of course, it’s entirely optional; these Italian green beans are fantastic on their own.
  • In a pinch, canned green beans will suffice, but keep two things in mind. 1) They’re frequently high in sodium and even sugar. If these are issues for you, read the labels and rinse the green beans before using them in this recipe. 2) They have a distinct texture from fresh or frozen green beans since they have been canned in liquid. When you sauté them, they’ll be softer and won’t crisp up as nicely.
  • Before you start making Italian green beans, make sure the green beans are slightly cooked. They should be cooked just long enough to be fork-tender. Don’t go overboard! If you start with them uncooked, it will take longer to cook them, and the oil and garlic will burn. If they’re already overcooked, sautéing them will make them even more so.
