Lemon Green Beans

Lemon Green Beans
Green beans have lots of Vitamin K, C, A, iron, and folate like many of the other green vegetables. This zesty recipe makes for a tasty side dish or snack.
4 servings

12 ounces boiled green beans, ends trimmed
1 tablespoon unsalted organic butter
1 tablespoon minced shallots
2 ounces pine nuts
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Cook the green beans in boiling water for about 10minutes or steam in a double boiler with a steamer top until firm tender. Drain the green beans and pat them dry.  Heat the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat until melted.  Add the shallots and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to keep them from burning. Add the pine nuts and cook, stirring, for an additional minute. Add the green beans and toss to combine everything evenly for about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, salt, and pepper and toss again. Remove from heat and serve.
