I created this dish to have a hot side dish to compliment our Baked B B Q Chicken. We were already having a green salad, so this was the perfect addition, Simple quick & easy with items on hand in the pantry and fridge it came together quickly.

My husband appreciated that it had so much flavor being that the green beans were from a can. I always keep canned vegetables on hand, although most of the time I use fresh or frozen. They come in handy when you are in a hurry.

The bacon and flax seeds on top added lot of flavor and texture. They were very tasty, hope you give them a try soon.

How to Make QUICK LOW CARB GREEN BEANS

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop the onions, shallots, sweet peppers and garlic.For any new cooks that are not familiar with shallots, the 2 Medium size Purple onions are called shallots, I used both pieces, they were attached together before I peeled away the outer layers. It is like a mild flavored onion.
  2. These are the size canned vegetables that I used, but drained them before adding to skillet.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to skillet, & heat over medium high heat. Add the chopped veggies to the skillet and saute for about 5-7minutes or until vegetables are transparent.
  4. Then add in the drained mushrooms and green beans and continue to heat until heated through. Add seasoning if desired, I did not add any.
  5. Once heated through pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with crumbled bacon & flax seeds. Serve while still hot. Note: I had not sprinkled on the Flax Seeds when I took this picture.
