Garlic and Bay Leaf Infused Red Patatoes and Green Beans

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Tylers Cook

This is a great side dish! It is sauteed in Olive Oil with Bay Leaf and Garlic. It is very light and a healthy alternative to potatoes and butter.

This came together quickly and was very pretty. Went well with our chicken. Made for PAC 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil your cut potatoes in water for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
  2. Add Oilve Oil to large sautee pan (enough to coat).
  3. Add garlic and bay leaves to infuse the olive oil. Constantly swirl bay leaf to get the flavor through out the oil.
  4. Add the drained can of green beans and sautee (these will not brown, just want to coat the green beans in the garlic and bay leaf oil for taste) and warm them.
  5. After potatoes are cooked and drained add to oil/green bean mixture.
  6. Add cracked black pepper throughout dish.
  7. Toss and add to seperate serving bowl.
  8. Delicious!
  9. In my personal use, I add A LOT more garlic and bay leaf. Depending on how much you like the flavor, you should do the same. I have also added other herbs but the garlic and bay leaf are my favorite.
  10. If you're not counting calories, you can always drizzle more olive oil to make the dish tastier, either during the sautee or after!
