Green Beans with Pine Nuts

Light, Summery (is that a word?) and perfect for a side dish or a nice easy lunch. Is Summer REALLY over? Since when did kids start school in August? (it's been two years now that my kids started school before Labor Day, and I DON'T like it)

School started on Monday for my kids and I can not believe I have two SENIORS and a 7th Grader! I am feeling old! Let the year begin, and may this be my best and most memorable year ever... my girls are really going off to college (that story is for another post... soon)!

Green Beans with Pine Nuts
from magazine clipping

1 slice Red Onion, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 lb green beans
1/4 cup water
Salt & Pepper, to taste
3 tbsp Pine Nuts

Saute' red onion in a skillet with olive oil, 5 minutes. Add 1 tbsp olive oil and green beans; cook 5 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water and salt & pepper to taste; cook until beans are tender, 7 minutes. Stir in toasted pine nuts; Serve.


  1. I LOOOOOOVE Pine Nuts! Love green beans too, so this is a winner in my book. When you get a chance, stop by. I've tagged you in a linky post.

  2. I love pine nuts and green beans. This looks so delicious and a perfect side dish.

  3. These look so yummy! Great meeting you thru SRC!

  4. I love these as well. I usually make them in the winter, but they are sounding so good tonight.
