This Italian Seasoned Green Bean Low-Carb recipe is super easy. You can use bottled dressing which makes it much quicker to prepare. I prefer the Walden Farms Calorie-Free dressing, but if you are Paleo or Primal, you may choose to make your own. It pairs well with beef, chicken, fish, or lamb and reheats easily if you are bringing it to a gathering. If you don’t have fresh green beans, simply thaw out a bag or two of frozen beans and use those.
One of my favorite things about this Stir-Fried Green Bean Recipe is the ability to adapt the spices to the meal I am serving. For instance, some meals call for a little spice so I add red pepper flakes. Other times, maybe some lemon pepper or ginger. However you choose to spice them, these beans add great texture to the meal. I like to serve stir-fried beans with Pork Roast and Sauerkraut because the pork and sauerkraut are sort of soft, and these beans add a nice crunchy texture to the meal. I always keep frozen, organic green beans in the freezer just in case I don’t have time to run to the store. You can use either fresh or frozen in the recipe without sacrificing taste.
