Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and drop in the green beans. Simmer over medium-high heat until beans are just barely cooked and still bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain immediately and rinse under cold water. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add drained beans, nuts, lemon zest, lemon juice, and thyme. Continue to cook until most of the juice has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Serve immediately.

This has become my new favorite way of eating green beans! I would add less lemon though- Somewhere between a whole and a half would be optimal! This went really well with either scallops or fish.

Like recommended, I cut back on the lemon. I used almonds b/c that's what I had on hand. My husband, who grew up despising green beans, really liked these. He said these were even better than the green beans I make with bacon fat and pieces. Now that's saying something...and since we've wanted to make healthier choices, what a bonus!

Turned out very very lemony. Probably should have used just 1/2 a lemon instead of whole. Also, felt like the walnut pieces were too chunky ... hard to get much walnut with the bean or vice versa :( .
