If you can't find haricots verts (those long, skinny French green beans), use green string beans and julienne them lengthwise. It's worth the effort. This recipe depends on high quality fresh beans for it's flavor. Prep time does not include julienning. From Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author.
- 1 lb French haricots vert, trimmed (or green string beans julienned lengthwise)
- 1⁄3 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts, lightly toasted
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
