When you are making a holiday side dish, or any dinner side dish, efficiency is key! So when such a dish is ready in 10 minutes, it kind of makes it onto your holiday menu. 10-minute nutty green beans, welcome to our Thanksgiving dinner this year!
With only a few ingredients, it is amazing how much flavour this dish produces. Earthy green beans perfectly balance with crunchy pecans, and are all coated with smooth buttery goodness. And the texture is just something else! The beans are tender, yet still slightly crispy, and the roasted pecans give it a crunchy smoky kick.
And because it doesn’t take a whole lot of ingredients to bring this dish together, the prep time is so so quick. The only prep required is basically washing and trimming the green beans, and chopping up the pecans. Add another 10 minutes to cook and you have the best green beans you have ever had!
