These green beans with garlic and tomatoes are a healthy side dish that’s seriously delicious. The three just pair so perfectly together and cooking them in garlic ghee makes them even better. Yes, GARLIC GHEE. It’s so insanely good.

  • 1 bag organic green beans prep them - see tips/notes
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp garlic ghee see notes
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic


  • Heat the garlic ghee over medium heat.
  • Add the green beans and cook until they start to soften, about ten minutes.
  • Then add the chopped tomatoes.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until they start to break down.
  • Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • Salt and pepper to taste!


  • Ghee is basically butter with the lactose removed, so it’s safe for most people, even the lactose intolerant. It still has that super buttery flavor, but it can be easier on digestion.
  • Snap off the very end of the stem of each bean or line them up on your cutting board and slice off all the stems at once.
  • Don't overcook your beans. You want them to be tender but they should still have a bite.
  • Cooking sauteed green beans for about 10 minutes in garlic ghee over medium-high heat is perfect. Then add tomatoes and garlic and serve them! 
  • Nope, I don’t blanch these before sauteing, and I don’t think it makes a big difference.
