Green Beans with Garlic and Walnuts

Green Beans with Garlic and Walnuts

My favorite way to have green beans.

  • 2 cups fresh green beans, cleaned – (stem tip snapped off)
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steam beans until tender but still slightly firm. Remove from steamer.
In the same saucepan, heat butter until melted, add a drizzle of olive oil to keep the 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 freshly grated parmesan for extra flavor.
