  • Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil no coconut flavor
  • A couple of onions sliced or diced
  • clove A or two of garlic minced
  • Green beans washed and with the ends snapped off
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Melt your coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat while you cut the onions.
  2. Add the onions and let them cook for a few minutes, until translucent.
  3. Toss the garlic into the pan and let it cook for a couple of minutes with the onions.
  4. Add your green beans to the pan, and toss to coat with the oil. Cover
  5. Cook, covered, about 10 minutes, opening the pan once or twice to stir things around again.
  6. When the green beans smell delicious (the timing is very precise as you can tell), remove the lid and add a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar.
  7. Stir and let the vinegar reduce a bit.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
