A rustic, delicious, family-pleasing vegetable side dish consisting of corn and green beans; sauteed in butter with herbs and aromatics.

Herb Buttered Corn and Green Beans

Talk about a fast and satisfying side dish! Trimming and cutting the green beans is the hardest thing about this recipe, and we all know that’s not that hard at all!

I’ve been in the mood for fall-ish side dishes lately, and I can’t think of one that’s more budget-friendly, delicious, and of course, visually pleasing as Herb Buttered Corn and Green Beans. I was so proud of them, I served them up in one of our antique serving bowls!

As beautiful as the green and the yellow contrast and complement each other, Herb Buttered Corn and Green Beans are not all about their good looks. The freshness of the veggies paired with the fresh herbs makes this side dish very special indeed.

I would proudly serve Herb Buttered Corn and Green Beans on my Thanksgiving table. I’d place them right next to my Butter Basted Turkey Legs and Thighs with Fresh Herbs, and my Herb Butter Mashed Potatoes, these Rosemary Roasted Radishes, and of course, my Mushroom Gravy.

Oh my God, I just went ahead and made myself hungry just thinking about how great that meal would taste! Sure, there’s a lot butter, but who cares!? Thanksgiving only comes one a year!

Preparing a dish like Herb Buttered Corn and Green Beans is my way of getting green beans onto my plate and into my mouth. I can’t say that I’m a lover of green beans unless that are cooked perfectly and seasoned very well. There’s got to be lots of flavour.

If you take a look at some of my other green bean recipes, you’ll see exactly what I mean. This one is flavoured with chives, parsley, and thyme, and paired with that beautiful corn. And, of course, there’s the butter, because what is a green bean and corn dish (or just about any Thanksgiving side dish) without butter?

  1. This is such a great idea! I never had anything like it - but I bet it's just perfect alongside all the other Thanksgiving dishes. And I'm with you - Thanksgiving should be at least 50% butter ;)
