Garlic Sautéed Green Beans

Tired of ho-hum side dishes? This simple side has only 5 ingredients and will brighten up any meal. Cooking fresh green beans with chicken broth and garlic gives them a wonderful flavor, while almonds add a delicious crunch. 

Total Time: 20 Minutes

Serves: 8 people 

Prep Time: 10 Minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed (about 4 1/2 cups)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup Swanson® Chicken Broth

  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced or slivered almonds (optional)


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat. Add the green beans and cook for 4 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add the garlic to the skillet and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the broth and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Cook for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the almonds, if desired.
