Weeknight Quickies: String Beans

It's the middle of the week and you've thawed out a meat and you know that something "healthy" should be on the side. Here's an introduction to what will be a weekly contribution to MangoEats appropriately dubbed "Weeknight Quickies". I will try to keep the ingredient list to 8 items or less and aim for items you may already have in your fridge or pantry.

Bon appetit folks! #MangoEats

 

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. string beans (washed, dried and ends snipped)
  • ½ tbsp kosher salt
  • ½ tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. toasted walnuts (or nuts of your choice)
  • 1 tbsp. EVOO
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • Half a lemon

 

Method

  1. Over medium heat, warm your EVOO
  2. Add minced shallots and cook until translucent.
  3. Add green beans (do not overcook, you still want a bit of crunch), add nuts once cooked to your preference.
  4. Lower heat, squeeze lemon half over pan and toss 
  5. Season to your preference with salt and pepper
