Thanksgiving Green Beans - In Stainless Steel Skillet with Thyme and Wooden Spoon

I get the convenience of the frozen or canned green beans, but fresh is so much better. And when you’re celebrating a holiday like Thanksgiving of Christmas, it’s definitely the time to get the good fresh stuff.

My favorite way to prepare Thanksgiving green beans is to saute them with lots of aromatics, like shallot, garlic, and thyme. 

Serve them proudly on your Thanksgiving table right alongside your Potato GratinMaple Glazed CarrotsDrop Biscuits, and Roasted Butternut Squash. Enjoy!

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped red onion or shallots
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 15 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp red wine vinegar optional
  • salt and pepper

Instructions 

  • Heat up a skillet over medium heat, then add the olive oil. Add the onion and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add the green beans and thyme, and season with more salt and pepper. Saute for 15 minutes, until the raw bite has been taken out but they are still crisp and al dente.
