Pan Seared Green Beans With Black Pepper Essential Oil and Feta

I love fresh, simple and flavorful foods! This recipe delivers all of these requirements! I don’t personally, enjoy canned green beans, even though I grew up on enough home canned beans to choke an elephant. 😂 Once I tried my hand at fresh, pan seared, there was no going back. Um… Those were at a chinese buffet pf all places. 😜 I also have a penchant for adding cheese to things. My hubby teases me ” everything is betta with feta!” And its true! Cheese cam absolutely finish off almost any dish. If your tummy suffers when eating cheese, just omit it. Seriously, I totally understand add some garlic or bacon crumbles instead. 😉

I love that this dish is so simple and fast and easy yet so delicious and filling and pretty. 😘

I also enjoy the zing of black pepper but I am not a fan of the crunch and grit that using a nice amount leaves behind. I also dont enjoy a black chunk of pepper stuck between 2 front teeth when I smile lovingly a my hubby over dinner. I’m sorry but that kills the mood instantly. 😁


Small knife

Heavy pan


1 lb. Of fresh green beans

3 tbs room temperature butter or ghee

1/4 – 1/2 cup crumbled feta

1-2 drops Vitality Black Pepper



1.Rinse your beans and end them.


2. Mix your black pepper essential oil into your softened butter. Place the mixture into your pan. Melt your butter in your pan over medium high heat.

3. Toss your beans into the hot, melted butter.

4. Toss frequently and cook for about 10 minutes. When you see them turn bright green and begin to appear a tad limp, they are done.

5. Turn off your heat and give them a toss. Dump in the feta and let it sit while you plate up the other food. Give it all one last toss before dishing into plates.


How simple is that!?
