EatingWell Test Kitchen
“The toasted smoky flavors in this fast sauté make it a warm addition to any winter meal.”
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 large shallot, minced
1 pound green beans, trimmed
½ cup water
2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts, (see Tip)
¼ teaspoon salt
1Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water; cover, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender. Remove from heat and stir in bacon, hazelnuts and salt.
Tip: To toast nuts & seeds on the stovetop: Toast in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
