Here’s a quick recipe for all of my peeps following a lower carb or ketogenic diet.  It’s packed with tons of flavor and the green beans are fibrous and hearty enough to leave you feeling satisfied with a small amount (so you can watch that carbohydrate limit).

Bacon, Jalapeño & Garlic Green Beans

Ingredients

Ingredients for 3 servings:

  • 3 cups raw green beans
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • fresh lemon juice (to taste)
Steps
  1. Slice open a jalapeno, remove the seeds then chop it into pieces.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium high heat and add bacon.
  3. Cook bacon in the skillet until it is nice and crispy. Reduce the heat in the skillet, then add garlic and jalapeno.  Cook for about 1 minute, but be careful not to let the garlic burn.
  4. Then add green beans and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until the green beans are soft, yet still have some crunch.
  5. Season with a little sea salt, pepper and lemon. Stir it up, then finally, toss in the cooked bacon.
