Low Calorie Sautéed Green Beans


Low Calorie Sautéed Green Beans
Kimberley K. Eggleston
Use a non-stick pan for this recipe. That way, there are just enough bacon drippings to sauté the onions without adding any additional fat to the dish.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 slices turkey bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1/2 of a medium)
  • 1 lb. fresh, trimmed green beans (about 3 cups)
  • Dash ground black pepper


2. Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add bacon. Cook bacon about five minutes, or until crisp. Remove the bacon, crumble, and set aside.

2. Add the onions to the pan. Sauté 4-5 minutes, or until translucent. Add the green beans, and sauté 5-6 minutes, or until the green beans are crisp-tender. They should be fork-tender, but still maintain a slightly crisp bite.

3. Return the bacon to the pan, season with a dash of ground black pepper, and toss the green beans, onion, and bacon together.
