  • 2 pounds green beans ends snapped off and longer ones cut in half
  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion diced
  • 3 cups lower sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 slices turkey bacon cooked and crumbled


  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a Dutch oven. Add onion and cook until soft.

  2. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium-low and cover the dutch oven. 

  3. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. For the last 5 minutes or so, I like to uncover the pot so some of the liquid evaporates. This concentrates the flavors.
