Sauteed Green Beans with Peppers and Onions

Delicious Sauteed Green Beans made with simple ingredients and packed with incredible flavor!


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, washed & trimmed
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Start by washing and trimming the green beans. I like to cut a tiny bit off on each end of the green beans. Next chop the red bell pepper and onion and mince the garlic or press through a garlic press and set aside.


Feel free to use more green beans if you want. This recipe works well with 1 ½ pounds of green beans too. If trying to serve a large family then just double the recipe.

Taste and add more salt or pepper if needed. But be careful as the chicken broth and soy sauce includes lots of sodium too.
