Garlicky Green Beans with Pine Nuts

beans multicolouredWe’ve had a spectacular, multi-coloured bean harvest this summer on the farm, and it’s not over yet, so it’s time for a fresh beans recipe. This one makes a lovely side dish.



  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 / frying pan 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.
