Garlic-Infused Green Vegetables

green beans and broccoli recipe

Sauteed green vegetables are a wonderful side dish to any main course. I like to make 2-3 different types of vegetables together; it saves time and adds variety to the table.

Sauteed Green Vegetables Recipe


3 cups green beans OR 2 cups broccoli
2 garlic cloves - thinly sliced
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Salt & black pepper


In a large skillet - heat the olive oil and garlic until the garlic is lightly golden. Add the green beans or broccoli. If you're making 2 types of vegetables, I  recommend cooking them separately, one after the other in the same skillet, because different kinds of vegetables have different cooking times.

Mix and saute the green vegetables in the garlic olive oil.
Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. 

Cover the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes on low heat. You can turn the heat off even if the vegetables are still crunchy. The vegetables continue to cook after you turn off the heat and you don't want them to get too soft.

To your health!
