Green Beans and Shallots

Green Beans and Shallots created by Bergy

This is a very simple side dish, that has lots of flavor. I like to serve it in the fall in winter because it seems light and fresh and still well-balanced with creamy sides. I made it up all on my own ;-)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
