Recipe Ingredients for Green Beans to Impress

1 lb. fresh green beans
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 oz. fresh parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Green Beans to Impress

  1. Top & tail beans, but leave them whole.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil, and when boiling, drop in beans; cook approx. 8 minutes, or until beans are tender-crisp (if you like your beans to be softer, by all means cook them longer).

  3. Drain well and set aside.

  4. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute garlic for a few minutes.

  5. Add walnuts to pan and, stirring frequently to prevent burning, cook walnuts for 2-3 minutes, or until they start to turn golden and are fragrant.

  6. Add drained beans to skillet and toss gently, making sure beans get coated with butter. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  7. Heat through for one minute, stirring gently once or twice, then turn out onto a shallow serving platter.

  8. Shave or sliver parmesan so it is in shards (a vegetable peeler works great for this), and place all parmesan slivers on top of beans and walnuts; serve immediately.
