Pinenut Encrusted Green Beans
December 4, 2011
This wonderful aromatic dish is easy to prepare and a nice change from your family's normal vegetable routine. Perfect for holiday dinners as well.
- a large pot with a lid
- 1 Tbsp. salt
- 1 lb. fresh green beans, ends snipped off (perfect project for a wiggly child)
- 3 Tbsp. butter
- 1/2 cup pinenuts, chopped
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- black pepper to taste
Bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the beans, cover and let cook at fast simmer for about 5 - 7 minutes until nearly done. Drain and set beans aside.
Return the hot pot to the stove. Melt the butter on medium heat. Add the pine nuts and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring constantly until the butter browns and the pine nuts turn mostly golden or brown.
Remove the pot from the heat. Add the green beans and the 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir to combine. Add the lemon juice and stir to combine. Add the pepper and additional salt if needed.
