Sauteed Green Beans with Bacon
These sauteed green beans with bacon and garlic are Whole30 friendly, loaded with flavor, and are seriously addicting.
- 2 lb fresh green beans
- 3 tbsp coconut aminos
- 10 cloves garlic crushed
- 1 tsp sesame seeds
- 6 slices thick-cut bacon
- Salt and pepper to taste
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.
