Bacon, Shallot & Rosemary Green Beans (Paleo-friendly!)

Submitted by: KATISCARLET
Bacon, Shallot & Rosemary Green Beans (Paleo-friendly!)

Introduction

Lots of veggies, very few calories. Takes little to no skill, and the hardest thing is not eating the bacon while the green beans cook. Try serving this instead of the creamy, fatty green bean casserole at holidays. Lots of veggies, very few calories.

Ingredients

    Hempler's Natural Bacon 6 slices
    1 medium Shallot, diced finely (about 1-2 Tbsp)
    Fresh Rosemary, 1 Tbsp very finely minced
    Fresh Green Beans , 6 cups cut into 1" pieces
    Parmesan Cheese, shredded, 4 tbsp (optional, included in nutrition)
    Salt & Pepper to taste

Tips

I like the natural bacon if you can find it. No nitrates and nitrites, so no fear of bacon causing cancer. And it's delicious!

Directions

Steam or boil the green beans until cooked to preferred texture. I like mine still barely firm, so that's like 10-15 minutes boiling. This time length is up to you. Drain and set aside.

Heat a pretty large pan over medium heat. You aren't adding them yet, but it needs to be big enough to hold the green beans.

Chop uncooked bacon into roughly 1/2" square pieces. Cook bacon until just barely crispy. Set aside on paper towels. DO NOT DISCARD GREASE.

Using the same pan with the grease still in it at medium heat, add the rosemary and shallot. Cook for a couple of minutes until the shallot turns color. Add the green beans and turn up the heat to med-high. Saute for a few minutes while stirring frequently so the flavors blend. The green beans can even be browned a little if you want.

Now turn off the heat and mix in the bacon. Stir well. Serve immediately with shredded Parmesan sprinkled over the top.
