Green Beans with Pinenuts

Although I did plant some green beans in our garden, I have to admit that these were not from mine, but from my fave warehouse store, Costco. These are French beans or haricot verts according to the packaging. I bought a pack a few weeks ago before our plants started bearing fruit.

1 Lb. Green Beans
2 cloves of Garlic, chopped
2 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Water
Salt to taste
Toasted Pinenuts

Heat/melt butter, add garlic and saute’ until fragrant. Add beans and roll in the butter & garlic mixture for about a minute. Add the water and sprinkle with salt. Cover and let cook until water evaporates. Take the pan off the heat as soon as it starts to dry up. Place on a serving dish and sprinkle with pinenuts.

About Jeanette Moore (JMom)

I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.

    Thanks for the complement for my kiddies. I do love PINEnuts, but never tried them in green beans. When I was young, we used to spend hours trying to crack the california pine nuts open. Never thought they would be available commercially. Though I know it is a different variety. I also want to complement you on your blog (colors, layout, etc) as it is very pleasing. It portrays a wholesum-ness that a food blog should have. Well done.
