Sometimes you eat over at a friend’s house and you realize whatever you’re eating is delicious so you let them know by giving them a quick compliment. “This <insert food here> is really good” you say. After eating an entire serving you head back for seconds and finally ask for the recipe only to discover it’s something really simple that you should have been making your whole life. This is one of those things…

fresh green beans (washed with ends snapped)
olive oil
sea salt
black pepper
1 tablespoon butter
cavender’s seasoning
garlic (minced)

Drizzle olive oil on the beans tossing them to coat then sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and cavender's seasoning. Throw the beans in a pan with a tablespoon of butter, garlic and a little olive oil heating over medium heat until beans are tender, tossing occasionally. The amount of ingredients are to taste; we usually eyeball how many beans we're hungry for and almost always go heavier on the cavender's seasoning. Simple, easy and delicious. Feed them to your friends/family and they'll be asking for the recipe, or at least for seconds, guaranteed.


  1. So, no Cavender's here, what would you recommend to use in place of it? I have never used it, so I don't have a clue how to compare.

    1. I have no idea... I don't think there's anything comparable. It's a Greek seasoning; if you can't find it locally maybe you can find it online? I think Amazon carries it. If you still can't find it, send me an email with your address and I'll send you some! Once you use it, I promise it will become a staple going forward. At my house, we use it on almost everything.
