Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots

Active Time: 10 minutes   |   Total Time: 20 minutes   |   Serves 6  |  Vegan  |  Gluten Free

  • 2 teaspoons plus ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ pounds green beans, stems removed
  • 6 large shallots, thinly sliced into rings
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Fill a large pot with water 2 inches from the top. Place over high heat and let come to a boil; add 2 teaspoons of the salt.

Remove the stems from the beans. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain into a colander and pass under cold water to stop the cooking.

Thinly slice the shallots into rings. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring often, until golden brown and caramelized, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the green beans and toss to coat until heated through. Season with the pepper and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt. Toss once more and serve.
