Fancy Green Beans #glutenfree #caseinfree
YUM! These fancy green beans are a super easy side dish with lots of flavor and texture that are naturally gluten-free and casein-free (make sure you use GF mustard and the walnuts aren’t processed at a facility with WHEAT).
1/2 lb green beans, trimmed
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
2 shallots, sliced
4 tsp olive oil, divided
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp GF stone ground mustard
Freshly ground black pepper
Mix together the vinaigrette: 2 tsp olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a small cast iron skillet, heat 1 tsp olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced shallots and cook over medium low heat until caramelized. Set aside.
Wash and rinse the green beans. Trim off the ends. Bring a large pot of water and 1 tsp olive oil to a boil and add the green beans. Cook for about 3-4 minutes. Drain.
In another small skillet, toast the chopped walnuts over medium heat for a few minutes. Let cool.
Toss together the vinaigrette, green beans, caramelized shallots, walnuts before serving. And there you have it – fancy, healthy green beans everyone will love!
