Braising in broth gives these beans extra flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large enough skillet to hold the beans until the oil begins to shimmer.
  2. Add the shallot and cook until golden, about five minutes.
  3. Add the breans and broth. Cover and simmer on low heat until beans are just tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with thyme sprinkled on top.

Green beans are not my favorite vegetable. However, these were exceptionally good. The broth adds a wonderful richness.

PAC Spring 2008 ~ Nice simple flavors. Used dried thyme (don't have fresh) and frozen whole green beans. Served with Recipe #233113

Delicious recipe without unnecessary ingredients allowing the veggies to take center stage. I used half broccolini and half green beans. I also had to replace thyme with Greek oregano. Served with fresh locally made pasta and French bread. Thanks for posting! Note: My 500th review. cg
