DIRECTIONS

  • cut steam end off of 1 lb fresh green beans. (use fresh frozen when out of season).
  • in medium sauce pan bring water to a boil. place green beans in mesh strainer and steam them. (should be hot all the way through while retaining garden fresh snap).
  • while beans are steaming, melt butter in med saute pan. when butter is lightly caramelized (just turning a light brown color) add pine nuts.
  • saute nuts till butter reaches preferred amount of caramelized color. (I like it to be well caramelized, some people don't though.).
  • if you want sauce a little thicker just stir in a pinch of arrow root. Be careful with this as it doesn't take much.
  • slice cherry tomatoes in fourths.
  • plate green beans all in one direction, spoon a little sauce over middle of beans, place a piece of sliced cherry tomato on top.
  • makes an attractive addition to any meal.
