These oven roasted green beans and bacon are super easy to make and have a delicious honey garlic glaze – and it’s all keto-friendly!
Are Green Beans Low-Carb
Green beans are also called snap beans because you can snap them in half. They are a high-fiber vegetable that fit perfectly into the keto lifestyle. There are 7 grams total carbs in a cup of fresh green beans. If you subtract the fiber, that leaves 4.3 grams of net carbs per serving.
With this low amount of carbs, you can enjoy a full serving of them without feeling guilty.
Honey Garlic Green Beans
I love honey garlic recipes! The nutty garlic flavors round out the umami flavors from the soy sauce. Then, the sugar-free honey ties it all together with the best and sweetest notes. There is nothing like it!
Since I love honey garlic recipes I decided to try and use this combination on green beans and it turned out so good. Green beans have a bold enough flavor that the honey garlic sauce doesn’t overpower them.
When you pick up some fresh green beans from the store, it’s best to remember which flavors go well with them. Green beans taste best with salty and sweet flavors. So, think of glazed and salty toppings like sweet and sour, or sweet mushrooms with salty bacon.
Yes, bacon always tastes amazing with green beans!
In order to keep this recipe keto-friendly, I suggest using a sugar-free honey. Local honey from bees is basically pure sugar, which could put you out of ketosis. Instead, use something like Nature’s Hollow sugar-free honey substitute.
Not only does it mimic the texture of honey, but it also has honey flavoring. If you don’t have that honey substitute, you can also use either Stevia, allulose, Monk fruit sweetener, or erythritol sweetener instead.
Oven-Roasted Green Beans
Since these green beans have an Asian flavoring, I suggest serving them with your favorite Chinese recipes. They are the perfect side dish to serve with keto Chinese boneless spare ribs. The spare ribs have so much flavor that the green beans will just be a supporting part of the menu.
You could also serve the green beans with a plate of keto Asian chicken with mushrooms. It is a classic recipe that I use quite often because it is so easy to throw together in a skillet.
If you have leftovers, they are really easy to store and reheat. I like to use them in my meal prep. Just store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Then, reheat them in a skillet or in the microwave.
Green Beans and Bacon
The best thing about this recipe is how quickly it all comes together. Since I used canned green beans, you don’t have to spend time snapping the fresh green beans. You could use fresh or frozen green beans instead – it will just change the amount of time it takes for them to cook in the oven.
Frozen green beans will take the longest – just keep an eye on them.
