Spicy Buttered Beans
At about 3.5net carbs per cup, green beans are not the keto-friendliest of all veggies. But paired with a rich blend of savory ghee and red pepper flakes, you can definitely enjoy this occasional carb "splurge."
4 cups trimmed green beans
2 tablespoons Golden Ghee
2 garlic cloves, minced
Pinch red pepper flakes
Pinch sea salt
Directions Preparing:5 minCooking:10 min
Step 1Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook for 3 minutes.
Step 2Meanwhile, prepare a bowl of ice water. Drain the green beans and immediately plunge them into the ice water to stop them from cooking. Once cooled, drain the beans and set aside.
Step 3In a medium skillet, melt the ghee over medium heat. When it is hot, add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and salt and cook until soft, about 1 minute.
Step 4Add the green beans and toss until hot, about 3 minutes. Serve.
