Nutty Green Beans

1 pound fresh string beans, stem ends removed
  • 1 tablespoon of Grape seed oil or oil of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/3 cup pecan pieces
  • Salt, to taste

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Add green beans, return to a boil and cook 1 minute; the beans should still be crisp. Drain the beans; don't rinse.
  3. In a large skillet add oil. Heat until very hot.
  4. Add beans and cook about 1 minute, turning often with tongs or spatula. Sprinkle on pecans, butter and Cajun Seasoning. Turn the beans and pecans to coat with oil, butter and spices. Cook about 2 minutes more, or until beans and nuts are slightly browned. Salt to taste and serve.
Notes: Sometimes you need to cook longer, cook to tenderness that suits you. You can try almonds, or bacon bits instead. Recipe is quick and tasty!
