Nut Crunch

Start Cooking

Prepare the Green Beans

  1. Cook frozen string beans in a little salted water just until tender crisp. Drain and set aside. Keep covered.

  2. In a large frying pan, heat one tablespoon olive oil for the crunch. Add the pecans and walnuts; cook over medium heat until toasted, about four minutes. 

  3. Stir in maple syrup and salt. Cook and stir for three to three and a half minutes or until pecans are glossy and fragrant. Turn onto parchment paper to cool. 

  4. Wipe out the frying pan and heat the lemon-infused olive oil. Add onion and sauté until tender. Add the flour and stir until onion is coated. Add the remaining ingredients and stir with a whisk until thickened and smooth. Remove from heat.

  5. Mix string beans into sauce and stir until lightly coated. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with nuts.

Tip:

If you don’t have lemon-infused olive oil, add a small amount of lemon zest (1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon) to the pan. Don’t overdo it because the more prominent flavor here is orange, not lemon.

    Made it as a Thanksgiving side dish, and it was easy to make and delicious to eat! Has a pretty winning flavor combination that I regularly enjoy with green beans, which is citrus and nuts. I normally use almond slivers, brown butter, and orange zest with green beans, but I may have to try using this recipe more often!
