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.
This was so tasty and everyone loved it. The shallots I bought were a bit over-sized, so I used only 4 and that worked out well (as I think any more would have been too much, I think). I decided on hazelnuts so I could use what I had left from the holidays, and I thought they added a nice flavor and texture to the whole dish.

This dish was beautiful and delicious. I have a new found respect for lemon zest! I added fresh cherry tomatoes and used slivered almonds, instead of hazelnuts. Served over Co us Co us as my main course. Delish!
Perfect! Made belatedly in memory of Pets'R'us.
I made these exactly as directed using hazelnuts. Easy to put together, very tasty and a lovely presentation. Loved them!

Can I just say I made a Mexican version? The beans were prepared with the olive oil, garlic and shallots. They were wrapped in foil and cooked on the grill. The pine nuts were lightly toasted before chopping. Cilantro was used in place of parsley and lime zest in place of lemon. Now does the Mexican version make sense? Pets', I know that you would most certainly appreciate this review. You had a marvelous sense of humor and will be sorely missed. The recipe is very versatile and something I will make again. I look forward to making it as written.
These turned out better than I thought! They were done just right, not to mushy or to crispy (they were more cripsy than mushy). The hazelnuts added a very nice flavor and texture and the lemon zest came through in the just the right amount. Made in Memory of Pets'R'us, 2011.
Wow! This really packs a lot of flavor. The roasted garlic, lemon and nuts really make this dish. Made as written using 5 gloves of garlic and pine nuts as that is what I had on hand. Am looking forward to trying it with Hazelnuts. This will be a good dish for the Holidays. Thanks for the
