recipe image


Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Serves 6

Level: Easy


  • 2 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  • ¼ Cup Hazelnuts, finely chopped and toasted
  • 2 Tsp Lemon Zest
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 ½ lbs Green beans, rinsed and trimmed
  • Salt/Pepper to taste



-For Hazelnuts, put them in a small sauté pan on the stove on med-hi heat. Stir them around in the pan until they start to turn golden brown, but keep an eye on them because they’ll burn very quickly.  5-10 minutes.  Next chop them and put them in a bowl with the butter, and lemon zest and mix thoroughly.

-Fill a large saucepan with water, add the salt and bring to a rolling bowl.  Add the Beans and cook for 3 minutes, drain, return to the pan and add the butter, toss for about 3 more minutes, or until butter is melted, and beans are coated.
