Ingredients

1 1/2
pounds
green beans, trimmed
4
tablespoons
unsalted butter
2
large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/3
cup
(about 2 ounces) pine nuts
kosher salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a skillet or small saucepan over medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon as it starts to foam. Remove the butter from heat as soon as it begins to turn golden brown and smell nutty, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the garlic, pine nuts, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Swirl the skillet over heat for 30 seconds more to coat the nuts. Spoon the mixture over the green beans and serve.
