Garlicky Beans and Nuts

2 pounds of green beans – I also like to use the purple or yellow ones and will mix them just be forewarned that the purple ones usually lose their color when cooked.

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

2 large cloves of garlic – slice them thinly

1/3 cup of nuts I like to use walnuts but some prefer pine nuts for this dish.  If you’re using walnuts either use the pieces or if you have whole nuts, roughly chop them.

Salt and Pepper to taste

How to:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  While the water is coming to temp clean the beans.  Rinse them and snip off the stem end where the bean was connected to the plant.  Once the pot of water boils add the beans and cook until tender or al dente like your pasta!  Cooking time takes about 3 to 5 minutes.

While beans are cooking heat olive oil in skillet once that is hot add the sliced garlic and cook for about one minute – keep stirring!!!  Add the nuts and cook till a golden brown color about 3 minutes.  Keep a close eye on this garlic and nuts can burn very quickly!

Beans should be done by now – drain them and carefully transfer to the skillet.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Toss gently pour into a pretty serving bowl and enjoy!!!
