Description

Green beans with Toasted Walnut Vinaigrette, a simple, delicious side dish that will enhance almost any meal.  Vegan and Gluten-free. 


Ingredients

Units Scale

___

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, stem end snapped off
  • fresh basil, mint and chives for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Start by whisking up the dressing.  It a bowl add toasted walnuts, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, dijon, maple syrup, garlic, salt and pepper.  Drizzle in olive oil whisking all the while.  
  2. Heat up a skillet to medium-high heat, when good and hot add green beans to the pan, dry-no oil.  Leave undisturbed for 2 minutes.  Stir around and leave for another few minutes, repeat until beans start to lightly blister but are still crisp, about 6 minutes.  Add 2 tablespoons water cover with the lid for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Place on a serving dish and drizzle with vinaigrette (you will have some left over).  Garnish with a sprinkle of fresh chopped basil, mint and chives.

Notes

Toast walnuts in the oven (a toaster oven or air fryer works great here) 325 degrees F for 5-8 minutes.  Watch carefully if they get too dark they can become bitter.

You will most likely have vinaigrette left over.  Use the extras at another meal for salads, grains, and veggies.
