Ready in under 15 minutes, this side dish is not only delicious but super quick to cook. Green beans + garlic is the perfect combo, for a keto-friendly side dish. Plus the great thing is, they’re also vegan and gluten-free so they can meet a range of dietary needs.
Green beans are also pretty much the only keto-friendly beans out there. They’re low carb, with only 3.6g net carbs per 100g. They are also a good source of Vitamin C, with 27% of your daily allowance in 100g.
By cooking them in oil such as olive or coconut, you can up the fat content and then once combined with a decent protein source such as chicken, or tofu they make a great side dish. They’re also pretty cheap as well, at only 50p per 100g of fresh green beans, and about £1.30 per kg of frozen.
If you wish to use pre-minced garlic, I recommend going with either Lazy Garlic if in the UK or, Kirkland’s Minced Garlic in the USA. You’ll need 1 tablespoon of pre-minced garlic per garlic clove, so for this keto recipe, you’ll need 4 tablespoons of pre-minced garlic for 4 servings, or only 1 tablespoon if you’re doing this for 1 person.
