Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green beans, and cook uncovered until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter with the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the beans are almost tender, drain and add to the skillet. Continue cooking the green beans in the butter until they are tender, about 2 minutes more.

  • Season the beans with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Place onto a warmed serving dish, and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.

Interesting to try but I learned feta cheese and green beans are not a good combination for me. (And feta hating Hubs wouldn't even try them) Read More

I liked these green beans but I am not sure about the addition of the butter with the olive oil so I'd omit that next time. I also would prefer to just drizzle the olive oil over the beans along with the lemon salt and pepper instead of finishing them off in another pan to wash. Otherwise just perfect. Can't wait to eat the leftovers! N R Go to the Recipe Exchange to find out about N R Read More

We actually enjoyed these quite a bit. The lemon feta and beans were a great flavor combination. We did add a little bit of garlic to the butter olive oil mixture because my husband said he couldn't live without it. We will be having these again and I can't wait to try them with fresh beans from the garden. N R Read More

I used frozen green beans and followed the same directions. In a word: YUM. All five in my family devoured them even the picky 5 and 2 year olds. Read More

I love fresh green beans and this is definitly a good way to fix them. They were easy to fix and the flavor was great. I only made 1/2 of the recipe more than enough for two. I think for health reasons I will leave out the butter next time. I served this with the Lemon Garlic Tilapia from this site. It was a good combination for dinner. Thanks so much for sharing.
