Green Beans with Lemon and Feta Cheese

Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small red onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 lb. fresh green beans ends snapped and washed
  • Juice of one large lemon
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • Salt and pepper season to taste


  • 1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and saute the garlic and onion until tender. Stir in the green beans. Add the lemon juice and stir again. Place a lid on the skillet and cook the green beans until tender, about 5 minutes. Make sure you stir the beans at least once.
  • 2. Pour the green beans into a bowl or onto a serving platter. Top with feta cheese and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
  • *Note-I always squeeze additional fresh lemon juice on the green beans right before serving.
