Green Beans with Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Green Beans with Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomatoes is my favorite way to make green beans. The garlic and sun-dried tomatoes go perfectly together! 



We first had these beans at a local restaurant in our town. I got them every time we went there no matter what I got for dinner. Even if I ordered a burger I would get these as a side instead of fries.

Then all of a sudden they took them off the menu!!  Lucky for me the chef gave me the recipe. It’s so easy to make. I make them almost every week.



Green Beans with Garlic and Sun-Dried Tomatoes are so easy to make and  healthy. Fresh  garlic always  adds a great  taste to me. After all I am Italian. So with a little bit of olive oil, butter and garlic everything tastes good.

This is great dish to serve for a dinner party or any  holiday meal or just because on a weeknight. This is a delicious side dish with just about anything.  Best of all these delicious green beans are made with just 6 ingredients!!

  1. Um it doesn’t say when to add the soy sauce…

    1. It’s in the first line of the directions. It’s the garlic mixture

  2. Guy Desjardins says:

    The quantity of Sun dried tomatoes seems too small, shouldn’t it be at least 2 tablespoons or maybe a 1/4 cup?

    1. You can add as much as you want. These are dried so they are much more than 2 tsp once they are placed in water
