Parsley Cashew Green Beans

An excellent side dish any time of year. I make these with either traditional green beans or with the more slender haricot vert.

Serves 4 as a side dish

INGREDIENTS

8 oz haricots verts or green beans

1 T olive oil

2 cloves garlic, finely choppedĀ 

pinch crushed chili flakes

2 T fresh parsley, chopped

2 T cashews, finely chopped

METHOD

Trim bottms off green beans, rinse and set aside.

Heat oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chili flakes and garlic and saute briefly. Add grean beans and saute 1-2 minutes. Add parsley and cashews and continue to saute until cooked to your liking. Add kosher salt to taste and serve.
