Recipe by Busters friend

I love green beans - especially thick crisp garden fresh Romas. Our pole beans are coming in now & I'm digging out all my favorite ways to have green Beans. This recipe came in an email from gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world. Elegant & yum. Thanks, Lavendar!

This dish has such great elements in it, and it comes together nicely. I used a silpat to roast the beans, so used only about a tablespoon of the oil. I just used a sprinkle of salt. I ended up accidentally using half the beans, but the balance was great - so I wouldn't change it for next time. I added 2 tablespoons of the nuts, since 2 teaspoons seemed like too little. The hearts of palm are super in this. Yum!
