1 lb. green beans, washed and stems removed
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon minced thyme
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1/3 cup toasted, roughly chopped walnuts
1) Cover a baking sheet with foil and add your washed, dried and trimmed green beans. Toss with red onion, olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes.
2) In a small bowl, combine balsamic, honey, thyme, garlic. Remove beans from oven and using tongs, coat the beans with the balsamic sauce. Continue roasting until beans are a dark brown caramelized color and have started to shrivel, 10-12 minutes longer. Taste one for seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed.
3. Transfer beans to a serving bowl and sprinkle walnuts on top. Serve.
