Green Bean Un-Casserole
I’ve never been a fan of the gelatinous goop with deep-fried onions on top – also known as the traditional green bean casserole served on Thanksgiving.
I love green beans. A lot. And I don’t prefer them swimming in goop. Thankfully, neither does the hubby! 🙂
This recipe is full of flavor and leaves us feeling satisfied, not wishing we’d never eaten. Why not lighten up your table with a quick and easy recipe this year?
- 2 pounds fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
- 2 TBSP olive oil or walnut oil
- 2 TBSP minced garlic
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 2 TBSP minced fresh parsley
- ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- 1/8 tsp (or to taste) sea salt
Place walnuts on ungreased baking sheet and bake 7 minutes at 350° F until lightly toasted.
Place beans, garlic and 1 TBSP oil in storage bag and shake to coat beans in oil and garlic.
Sauté beans and garlic in remaining oil, 5 minutes, until crispy-tender.
