    How to make Green Beans with Hazelnuts and Lemon

    • Cook the beans in salted boiling water until they are tender. This should be 3-8 minutes.
    • Drain and empty the beans into a bowl. Add lemon zest, olive oil, salt, hazelnuts, and pepper.
    • Use finely chopped almonds in place of hazelnuts for variation. Substituting butter for olive oil in this recipe complements both the beans and hazelnuts, bringing out a varied flavor that is both rich and delicious.

    Trivia

    • Did you know that there are more than 130 varieties of green beans? Beans have been cultivated for over 7000 years now.
    • Interestingly, Calvin Keened is credited with developing the first “stringless” bean in 1894. He is called the “father of the string less bean”.
