Sauteed Wax Beans with Garlic

I am often asked for dietary recipes, good for those who care about their body or want to have a balanced and healthy diet. To be honest, I cook a lot on a diet, but it seems like the obvious things to me seem impossible to others - cooking with a little oil, for example - vegetables in light cooked versions for many are tasteless and flavorful food.

Well, let me tell you that these beans (green or yellow), my favorite garnish for a baked fish or a slice of grilled / baked meat. I really recommend the preparation method, it is healthy, tasty and very simple.


Wax beans
500 g
or green beans
Green onions
2 pieces
you can also use plain white onions, but nutritionists do not recommend it - the lighter is the green one
Extravirgin olive oil
1 tbsp
or sunflower oil
Garlic cloves
2 pieces
0.5 tsp
to taste

Step by step


The beans are cleaned and washed - you can break them into shorter pieces or leave them whole.


Now you have 2 options to cook them:

- Steamed, that's what I did - it keeps all its vitamins and the pods taste better.

- boil in water, simpler and classic.

However, in both variants do not boil them too much, about 15 minutes, to be a little al dente.


When the pods are almost cooked, prepare and heat a deep pan well.

Add half a glass of water, 1 tablespoon of oil and finely chopped green onions. Let it cook like this until almost all the water evaporates, and the onion is cooked.


Add the cooked pods to the pan with the hardened onions, mix well - leave for 5 minutes on the fire.


Then add the crushed garlic, salt and mix well.


Immediately turn off the heat, put a lid on the pan with pods and let the flavors penetrate for 5 minutes.


You can serve them as a healthy and tasty food or garnish.

Good appetite!
