Blue Cheese-Walnut Green Beans
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“Tender-crisp green beans tossed with creamy blue cheese and topped with toasted walnuts pair well with grilled steak or chicken.”
1 pound green beans, trimmed
¼ cup water
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
⅓ cup crumbled blue cheese
⅓ cup toasted chopped walnuts , (see Tip)
1Bring green beans and water to a boil in a large skillet. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the beans are just tender, 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the water has evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes more.
2Add oil, salt and pepper to the pan and cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Transfer the beans to a large bowl and toss with blue cheese until well coated. Sprinkle each serving with walnuts.
Tip: To toast chopped or sliced nuts, stir constantly in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
