Beans with HazelnutsPosted by in Food
A new idea for beans is always welcome. I make a lot of beans. Usually I have green beans, but I happened to have some fresh yellow beans so I used those. This is just a simple finishing idea for beans. Steam or boil them, then toss with some butter, salt and pepper and some toasted hazelnuts. I’ve used toasted pecans or toasted slivered almonds with beans and those are delicious, but this was something unusual and we enjoyed it (although my father-in-law asked “are those chickpeas?”). This is something I would not have thought of myself and it gets a thumbs up.

I adore hazelnuts and green beans. Why not combine them? I bet slivered almonds would be nice too.
I love green beans. I prefer them in a mix of fresh cut corn, red potatoes and butter. But this sounds like a tasty side dish, too.
That sounds interesting. I don’t generally mix them with other veggies – sounds like it would be good though.
