Garlicky Green Beans with Pine Nuts

This was another new dish that I added to our Christmas menu this year.  Since green beans are a staple on a holiday dinner table, a new variation is welcomed every now and then.  This is a delicious one!

Garlicky Green Beans with Pine Nuts

Ingredients ::

1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced (I substituted with squeeze garlic, a cooking condiment you can find in the fresh produce section at the grocery store.)
1/3 cup (about 2 oz) pine nuts
kosher salt and pepper

Directions ::

1.  Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Ad the green beans and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes.  (I always steam my fresh vegetables in stead.)

2.  Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook, stirring for one 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 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and toss to coat.  Transfer to a serving bowl.
