I just had this as a side dish for dinner. I can still taste it. Yummy! I did add some butter to the olive oil. I made it with Bacon Wrapped Chicken #79944. All three of us loved this and the flavors went so well together we were in heaven! My husband loved this recipe I will be making it a lot. Thank you for posting.

WOW, who knew there was a recipe. Thanks for posting it! I make this all the time and just discovered the beauty of using shallots vs. garlic and green onion. A far superior taste. This is a fantastic recipe. I prefer using fresh haricots to frozen green beans. The frozen seem to turn out waterlogged. Once in a while I throw in fresh or canned diced tomatoes.

Great side dish. I used fresh sahllots from the farmers market and steamed frozen green beans. Dear Hubby loved it and said it had to go on the Thanksgiving menu.

Green Beans and Shallots was my mother's favourite way to serve fresh beans from her garden, and I am glad she did, for it gave me a taste for good things. Sometimes we would enjoy these beans with pearl onions, sometimes with cooked mushrooms, sometimes with all three. Whichever way one prefers, I am happy to share. After steaming the green beans, I added them to the shallots and continued to saute in the olive oil. It was a lovely "insaporira" of flavours.

Very good. Used 2 pkgs froz. 10 oz. french style green beans, came out great! Will make it again, our 5 year old liked to proclaim he loved eating 'grass'!

Love the beans & Shallots together. I cut the recipe back to 2 sevings and that may have been the problem but I found that there was too much oil and will cut it in half next time. I served the beans with Sea Bass, mustard potatoes & Ginger carrots - great combo Thanks Gay It's a keeper

This is a great green bean recipe and it went so well with our Christmas ham. I made as written, using a 1-lb. bag of Trader Joe's frozen French green beans and seasoned with some Hawaiian sea salt. Delicious and easy. Thanks Gay, this will be made again at my house!
