coconut oil, butter, or ghee
1 large onion, sliced thin
4 large garlic cloves cut into chunks
1 pound pole beans, ends trimmed
pure salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

  • Caramelize the onions by slowly & gently cooking them in the oil so they become translucent, then brown very slowly (this may take 15 – 20 mins).
  • Once the onions look pretty good, add the garlic & saute just a few minutes more.
  • Add the beans & continue cooking until tender crisp (5 – 10 mins depending on how you like them).
  • Add salt & pepper to taste & serve.



~ Pole beans are another vegetable introduced to me by my CSA farm. This dish is so savory & crisp-crunchy.
