A lovely recipe found in Fine Cooking. I made it twice, the second time I did not have the hazelnuts and substituted dry roasted pine nuts and it was just as good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Slice the shallots length-wise into ¼ inch slices.
  3. Put shallots, green beans and garlic in a large bowl, toss with the olive oil and the salt and pepper.

  5. In the meantime combine the parsley, nuts and lemon zest in a small bowl.
  6. Mix with the roasted vegetables and serve.

YUM!! I mainly used what I had on hand. So, I used 1-2 shallots, frozen green beans, garlic powder, and hazelnuts and lemon juice. Tasted great. Even the leftovers.

These were delicious, even with my use-what-I-have variation -- frozen shoe string green beans, and dried onion flakes. Other than skipping the parsley, pine nuts and lemons, the garlic, oil, salt & pepper went into the mix. Served with baked tilapia and leftover curry roasted cauliflower (recipe also found here). Very easy to make and just the right kick from the garlic. A definite do-over. Thanks!

Not sure if DD liked them or not. She didn't have much to say either way. But DH and I really liked them. Served as a side to lemon garlic grilled chicken.
