These blistered green beans make a quick and easy side dish! Ready in minutes and a delicious favorite!
Green beans were the star item in our local CSA box this past week and I have to admit that I was absolutely giddy when I saw them. I’ve tossed them into fresh green salads and crunched on them with a bit of hummus throughout the week, but one of my family’s favorite ways that I served them this past week has to be these easy as can be skillet blistered green beans.
Seriously, they couldn’t get much easier if they tried!
I added a little olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat and then tossed in the fresh green beans. Within less than 15 minutes, these delectable beans were ready for serving. They were crisp-tender with just the perfect amount of charring from the hot skillet.
Once they were ready, I sprinkled them well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and off to the table they went.
So, if you are looking for a delicious, quick and easy way to serve green beans, you may want to give this recipe a try! I can’t recommend it enough!
Here’s my oh so easy skillet Blistered Green Beans recipe. I hope you love ’em!
- 1 pound green beans
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Wash the green beans and pat dry with paper towels. Drizzle olive oil into a medium skillet and set over medium-high heat. Add in the green beans, toss gently to coat with the olive oil and cook until they begin to blister lightly, about 3 to 5 minutes. Toss the green beans to cook on the other side. Once the green beans are tender crisp and have reached the desired amount of blistering, remove from the heat and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss again lightly and serve.
