Author: Holly Gray


  • 1 pound fresh green beans trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil or butter
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons prepared vegan pesto or to taste
  • vegan Parmesan cheese grated - optional


  • Bring a large pot of water to boil and add green beans.  Allow to cook 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, drain beans, and immediately rinse with cold water.  Pat dry.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1 tsp. olive oil over medium high heat.  Add the green beans and toss to coat a minute or so, until heated through.
  • Remove from heat and toss with as little or as much pesto as you like.  Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve warm.
  • Or refrigerate and serve cold.  It's good either way.
