“In this easy green bean recipe, browning the butter before tossing it with the breadcrumbs produces a nice nutty flavor. Serve this green bean dish as a healthy alternative to green bean casserole or as an easy side with steak, chicken or fish.”


    • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • ½ cup fresh whole-wheat breadcrumbs
    • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  • 1 Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket. Add green beans, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, swirling often, until starting to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until the butter is nutty brown, about 30 seconds more. Stir in breadcrumbs and cook, stirring, until crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Toss the breadcrumbs with the green beans. Top with cheese.
