Blistered Green Beans Side Dish

A few weeks ago we had dinner at my parents house and my mom made green beans with a simple sauce and the girls gobbled it up. Avery didn't stop eating the green beans. This is huge for the girls since they are soooo picky when it comes to fruits and veggies.

I called my mom up and asked her for the recipe, so I could recreate it at home for the girls and when I found out how easy it was, I made it that evening.

You need four ingredients and that includes the water used. Seriously so simple and delicious.

Serves 4


12 oz. Green Beans
Better Than Bouillon Vegetable Base
Olive Oil

1. Drizzle a bit of olive oil in your pan (a couple swirls) and heat to medium high.
2. Once hot, add in your washed and cut green beans. Saute them until they blister (get a bit of char on them).

3. Add in 1/4 to 1/2 tablespoon of Better than Bouillon Vegetable Base and a couple tablespoons of water. Stir in and only let it cook for a minute or two as you don't want your green beans to go limp. You want them to still be crisp tender.

4. Remove from heat and enjoy.

We served this with spicy meatball subs the first time we had them and now it is becoming a regular side dish with all the fresh green beans coming into the grocery stores.

I hope you enjoy.


  1. Yum!!! I love cooking green beans this way. Going to have to add the better than bullion!

  2. Yummmy!! My hubby LOVES green beans so this would be a huge hit!! I have never heard of better than bullion, I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the store

  3. I gotta find that bouillon!!! Those looks amazing!

  4. This sounds really yummy! I wonder if I could just use a couple of tbs of veggie broth...I have that on hand. I will try it and see if it works!

  5. This sounds so yummy and would be a winner in my house! I adore how easy it is. I have bought that chicken bouillon before but never the vegetable, I'll have to grab some.

    1. You should definitely check it out and try it.

  6. Green beans are great with the right seasoning! This sounds yummy!

  7. I saw you mention the blistered green beans in a post or an IG pic (can't remember which) and I was going to ask you about them. They sound SO good! What section of the grocery store do you find that sauce? I am going to have to try these.

  8. Yum, what a fun way to spice things up! I'll have to add that to my list. Just made those lettuce wraps and LOVED them!

  9. I absolutely love green beans in any form, this recipe sounds amazing.
