Coconut Sautéed Green Beans with Tomatoes recipe photo
Coconut Sautéed Green Beans with Tomatoes
Prepared by Sarah Shilhavy, Photo by Jeremiah Shilhavy

Servings: 2 - 4
Preparation Time: 11 minutes

  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups fresh green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half if very long
  • virgin coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and lemon pepper (or black pepper) to taste
  • Grated Asiago or Parmesan cheese (optional)

Sauté the green beans in a few tablespoons of oil.

A few minutes or so before the desired degree of doneness, add more oil, if necessary, and the garlic and tomatoes. Sauté a few more minutes.

Remove pan from heat. Add salt and pepper and a good sprinkling of cheese, if desired. Serve warm or hot. (I haven't tried them cold; they might also be good that way.)

This could probably work for other veggies such as broccoli.

I made it with broccoli and beans, didn't add the seasoning as I was having an Asian meal, but might be good to use the parmesan if you're having it with pasta. I was looking for coconut oil recipes as I recently bought some thinking I would use it as moisturiser, but realised it would take me ages to get through the big jar so decided to start cooking with it. So this recipe was handy!

I love some of the recipes. They are simple and pretty easy to prepare. My thing is I'm trying to lose weight and I don't call it a "diet" I call it a lifestyle change and I wish these recipes told how many carbs, protein and calories were in a serving. It would make things so much easier for me anyway.

Since our recipes are almost all user submitted, it would be too complicated for us to add nutritional info to every single one. Everything on here is already completely free and a labor of love.
