Give standard green beans a flavorful upgrade by adding garlic and tossing with toasted pine nuts.


  • 1 ½ pounds green beans, trimmed

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • cup (about 2 ounces) pine nuts

  • kosher salt and pepper


  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, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the pine nuts and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

  3. Drain the green beans and transfer to the skillet. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving bowl.
