Southern Style Green Beans – FP

Southern Style Green Beans - FP

Pin This


This recipe is inspired by my 83 year old grandma.

A wonderful lady who grew up in Missouri and whole-heartedly believes that green beans cannot be served without bacon OR bacon grease.  I’m not saying she’s wrong, they’re pretty good that way….but I needed a veggie that fit into a few more of my Trim Healthy Mama Plan meals.

So, taking the flavors into account I came up with this…..

I am a mother to 7, and keeping in mind that I need this to stretch and hopefully make it to leftover days I doubled what we would normally eat in a typical meal.

Servings: 8-12

Time: 20 minutes


5 Pounds Green Beans

1 Tablespoon Mineral Salt

2 teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

¼ Cup Nutritional Yeast

1 teaspoon Liquid Smoke (I use hickory)

1 Tablespoon Oil (Avocado or MCT)


Put your beans (fresh, frozen or canned) in a large stockpot.  I use a 22 quart so I can stir it around well.  Then add all your other ingredients and cook on Medium until well mixed and heated through.

*Do not be intimidated by the amount of green beans!  They are great heated up for other meals, and fit into my Leftover Day routine because there are usually enough left for everyone.


Thank you so much for stopping by!
