Glazed shallots and lemon elevate an everyday side dish into a festive presentation befitting a Passover meal or other holiday celebration. This is a real crowd-pleaser that both children and adults will love. The green beans can be cooked earlier in the day and refrigerated, then reheated just before serving.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb. small green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 6 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Bring a large saucepan three-fourths full of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain the beans and rinse under cold water, then drain again.

In a large fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. When it begins to sizzle, add the shallots and sauté, stirring, until glazed and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, increase the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring with tongs, until the beans just begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and juice and cook for 30 seconds more. Add the parsley, season with salt and pepper and toss to combine. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl and serve immediately. Serve 6 to 8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to recipe for green beans This is a 'standard' for my Thanksgving table, as well as the rest of the year. I have made it for several Thanksgivings. So easy, can be prepped ahead. Blanche the green beans, store in a lg. ziploc. Chop the shallots & store in a small container, zest the lemon & prep juice & store in separate container. Store all in ziploc with beans. On Thanksgiving, reheat beans with shallots & lemon while turkey is resting. Very good, very fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not plain green beans Not a fan of complicating weeknight dinner. I do not prefer green beans, but family members do. This recipe allows the green beans to be the hero of any dish and a fan out of me!
