Why you will love this Green Bean Side Dish. 

Under 10 minutes Sauteed green beans are great for a quick side dish recipe alongside main dish meals. For the last 10 minutes of meal prep, throw on the skillet and let them sit side by side on the plate!

We believe these green beans would go great with just about any weeknight dinner, but we suggest an Italian Meatloaf recipe, TikTok Chicken Parmesan, or Cheeseburger Casserole.

Super Fun – I know it’s hard to call green vegetables “fun,” but dicing green beans over long strings is fun. Your kids will enjoy the new look, and the texture completely changes the consumption.

Expert Tips & Variations

Because these green beans are diced and look different than a regular string bean, you may be able to fool picky eaters into eating this as a perfect side dish with fewer complaints. 

Extra Flavor– It’s OK to get creative with flavor variations as this is more of a technique in cutting. Try beans with garlic, fresh lemon juice, onion powder, light soy sauce, lemon zest, Italian seasoning, pepper flakes, or garlic cloves for more flavor ideas.
