Caramelized Green Beans Recipe
Who knew I liked Green Beans?! I sure didn’t! I have always thought they were smooshy, nasty, and bland. That was until I discovered fresh green beans and learned to caramelize them. Seriously, INCREDIBLE. Give them a second chance! So here’s your caramelized green bean recipe.Get your hands on some gorgeous looking fresh green beans in the produce section (or better yet your garden in the summer). Cut off the stem end and leave the cute curly bottom end. 😉 No need to cut off both ends. Group them together to cut them all at once instead of one at a time.
Rinse, place in a pan, and drizzle with 1-2 T of Olive Oil.
Salt and Pepper…Cook for appx 30 min or until there are brown ‘caramelized’ areas. I personally don’t think there is such thing as ‘over cooking’ this dish. 5 minutes before serving, add a handful of pine nuts or almonds and mix together. Salt and pepper to taste.Who knew eating healthy could taste so good?
