I wanted to round out my Low Carb Thanksgiving with one of my favorite vegetables….Green Beans. I love Garlic, so naturally I had to dress up this standard side dish with some delicious garlic. One good thing about this recipe is that it’s easy to throw together. You can make them ahead of time and just warm them up in the garlic butter/oil. No fuss! I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I am so thankful to have such wonderful supporters out there who keep me motivated to continue on this low carb journey. I love blogging and I love sharing all of my kitchen adventures with you. I also can’t wait to enjoy some time with family and friends this Thanksgiving.

Add the garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned (be sure to stir frequently to keep the garlic from burning.
