Green Beans with Walnuts Recipe

Makes 10 servings

  • 1.13 kg haricots verts, cleaned
  • 57 g butter
  • 57 g minced shallot
  • 1 tsp/3 g minced garlic
  • 240 mL Chicken Stock, hot
  • Salt, as needed
  • Ground black pepper, as needed
  • 2 tbsp/30 mL walnut oil
  • 85 g chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp/3 g minced chives
  1. Cut the green beans on the bias, if desired.
  2. Heat the butter in a small rondeau or large sautoir. Add the shallots and garlic and saute over mediumhigh heat until translucent, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the green beans in an even layer. Add the stock. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bring to a simmer, cover the pan, and pan steam the beans until tender. The cooking liquid should reduce during this time and thicken slightly to coat the beans. If necessary, remove the cover and continue simmering until the liquid is almost fully reduced and coats the vegetables, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  5. Toss the green beans with the oil, walnuts, and chives. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
