Garlic Green Beans with Pine Nuts


4 people made this

Green beans sautéed with garlic are topped off with a splash of wine and toasted pine nuts. Fresh green beans are best but frozen will do just fine.

Serves: 4 

  • 4 cups green beans
  • 1/4 (60g) cup pine nuts
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon white wine
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh oregano, diced

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. To toast the pine nuts; add to a non-stick frypan over medium heat. Keep the pine nuts moving frequently by stirring or tossing, being sure that they are getting turned over. As soon as a bit of colour is beginning to show, remove them to a paper towel and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  2. Trim the green beans and slice the garlic. If it is easier to crush the garlic feel free to do so.
  3. Return the frypan to the heat and add the olive oil and garlic. Saute for 1 minute. Add the green beans and saute until tender (2-4 minutes). Add the wine and stir. Add the oregano and the butter. Saute for 1 minute.
  4. Transfer to serving plate and garnish with the toasted pine nuts.
