Anything that has bacon in it is automatically good, right?! That’s one of the many reasons we like to add it to our veggie dishes. These sauteed green beans with bacon and garlic are Whole30 friendly, loaded with flavor, and are seriously addicting. As an added bonus, they’re quick to make and require minimal prep. We finished the recipe with sesame seeds and a touch of coconut aminos for sweetness. Serve alongside your favorite Whole30 protein dish, like our Braised Short Ribs or Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, for a full and nutritious meal that will keep you satisfied.

Sauteed Green Beans with Bacon
what you'll need
let's do it
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. While it’s heating, cut your bacon into ½” pieces.
- Add the bacon to the pan and cook until done, about 5 minutes. Drain onto paper towels, saving 1 tbsp of the bacon grease in the pan.
- Add the green beans to the pan along with the coconut aminos. Cover with a lid and let steam for about 5-8 minutes or until tender but not too soft.
- Remove the lid and add the crush garlic and saute for about 1-2 minutes on medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the bacon and sesame seeds. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
