Lemony Green Beans with Artichokes and Capers

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 10 min
Serves 2

  • 12oz green beans, rinsed and trimmed
  • Water (enough to cover green beans by ~ 1”)
  • 1, 10oz jar of Reese Ready to Eat Marinated Artichokes, halved
  • 4 tsp of marinate from the jar of artichokes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp Reese Non Pareil Capers
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


Be creative and add in Reese Artichokes and Capers for an extra savory flavor to some classic lemony green beans. Whether it’s a quick summer side dish or the holidays, these beans are simple and delicious and pair with almost any meal.

1. Place green beans in a medium saucepan and fill the pan with water until the green beans are covered with approximately 1” of water. Boil over medium heat until the green beans are fork tender (about 7-10 minutes). Drain and rinse with cool water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
2. In a medium or large skillet, add the artichokes, marinade, olive oil, and salt and saute until the artichokes are slightly browned and most of the liquid has evaporated off (about 8-10 minutes). Add the capers, lemon juice, and lemon zest and toss to coat. Add in the green beans, toss to combine, and serve.
