Herb & Walnut Green Beans

Sides should be quick and easy additions to any meal!

I will admit that sometimes when I am cooking dinner I focus so much on the main dish that I completely forget about a side. When this happens I am always grateful for recipes like this! Less than 5 ingredients and about 10 minutes to make- now that saves major time in the kitchen!

Green beans go well with almost anything, so you might as well have a staple recipe for them! This is mine, so I figured why not share it with others? It’s always a win with any meal. I do this both with regular and French green beans, although I prefer the latter.

Sauté the green beans with some olive oil, garlic and the seasonings on medium-high heat for about 6-8 minutes. You can use thyme, marjoram or rosemary if you want a single herb. I often choose Herbs De Provence because it’s such a great combination of herbs for powerful flavor!

Add in the walnuts and stir, cooking for a few more minutes. I choose to cook the green beans uncovered because I personally like mine crunchy!
