- 2 cups fresh green beans, cleaned – (stem tip snapped off)

Steam beans until tender but still slightly firm. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
In same saucepan, heat butter until melted, add a drizzle of olive oil to keep butter from burning. Add nuts and garlic and stir until garlic is tender and fragrant. Add drained beans back in, toss to coat and heat through. Season with salt and pepper. You can serve with some fresh grated parmesan for extra flavor.
