  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan.
  2. Sauté the beans for 3-4 minutes over medium-high heat until they are slightly tender and browned. Lower the heat towards the end and add the spices. Put the beans aside in a bowl.

Tip!

This dish is great with fresh, thin green beans, but you can also use frozen. Just make sure they are properly thawed and drained, or the frying pan will cool down and they will taste boiled, not fried. You can also use yellow beans.

    The combination of green beans and avocado is great! Thank you for the recipe.
    I like green beans very much. I'm avoiding fresh green beans when they are "out of season". Will say: I only eat them when I can get them fresh from the market, not when they are imported and all vitamins got lost on their way to supermarket. An alternative are frozen green beans.

    This is the best green bean recipe I have ever made. It was delicious. I used six scallions and one super large avacado. It was amazing.

    I didn't have onions on hand, but crumbled bacon and a spoonful of cream cheese made this to-die-for.

    We had this with the stuffed chicken breast last evening.

    I had made the BLT chicken salad for lunch and saved the bacon grease.
    I used it to cook the green beans.
    It was to die for!!!
