Green Beans with Toasted Nuts

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/green_beans_with_toasted_nuts.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 1995, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Toasted nuts are a simple way to embellish green beans. If you have hazelnut or walnut oil on hand, use it in place of the olive oil to enhance the nutty flavor.

4 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

  1. Cook beans in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain.
