TNT Green Beans with Toasted Pine Nuts
Health Highlights


454 gm Green/yellow string beans, raw
1/4 cup Pine nuts, dried
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 dash Salt and pepper (freshly ground; to taste - sea salt)


  1. In a large sauté pan, bring 5 cups water to a boil. Drop the green beans into the water and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain in a colander, then run cold water over them for a few seconds to stop the cooking process. This will ensure that you don’t end up with soft and mushy beans.
  2. In the same pan, cook the pine nuts in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat, stirring, until the nuts begin to turn golden brown. Return the green beans to the pan along with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until the beans are heated through.
