Green Beans with Pine Nuts

From Donna Graham (FB friend!) - Thanks Donna!

2 tbsp olive oil

1/3 cup pine nuts

1 tsp paprika

1 lb green beans

1 small onion, finely chopped

5 garlic cloves,, finely chopped

Salt/pepper to taste

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Heat oil in large skillet, add pine nuts and cook for a minute or two to lightly brown. Keep shaking/stirring so they don't burn. Removed with slotted spoon to paper towel. Cover with paprika and set aside.

Trim green beans. Put in pan and cover with boiling water then return to boil and cook for 5 minutes - you want them tender but firm. Drain in colander.

Reheat oil in skillet, add onion and cook for 5 mins, add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add beans and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. I switch between sea salt and table salt - can't decide what I like more.

Put bean mixture in serving dish, sprinkle with lemon juice then scatter with the pine nuts. Serve hot. Yummy!!!!!

My notes: I steamed the green beans in a Ziploc Steamer bag.
