About

An adamant non-green bean eater said, "I think I might like green beans," when eating these. I think that's a pretty great compliment! Easy and quick, these green beans go nicely with chicken, pork or fish. This recipe has healthy, good fats from the olive oil and nuts that can help one feel fuller. I made a half recipe tonight since I was potentially the only one going to eat this dish. I would suggest doubling if you are lover of green beans or if you are cooking for more then two people.
