Green beans provide almost daily yields once they get into their stride. Here, some butter and a scattering of toasted hazelnuts turn them into an interesting side dish for most meats and fish.
- Prep Time : 5 minutes
- Cook Time : 5 minutes
1. Put the beans in a pot of salted water and boil for 5–6 minutes, or until they are cooked but still have a bit of bite to them. Drain, and then refresh under cold water so that they stop cooking and retain their color.
2. Transfer to a serving dish, top with the butter and toasted hazelnuts. This dish is particularly good served with roasted chicken or lamb.
