Garlicky Green Beans with Pine Nuts

When your garden (or the farmers market) provide you with more green beans than you know what to do with, try this green bean and garlic recipe. The pine nuts add another layer of flavor that makes this simple side a great dish to share at a family barbecue.


1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/3 cup (about 2 ounces) pine nuts
Kosher salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the pine nuts and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Drain the green beans and transfer to the skillet. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving bowl.
