Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots

Delicious! My friend who made the green beans has a CSA from the same farm as us. The green beans are out of this world, full of flavor and crisp! And we are getting a ton this summer.

Green Beans with Caramelized Shallots
From Everyday Food’s Great Food Fast

3 T butter
6 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
Course salt and ground pepper
1 pound green beans, trimmed

In a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, melt 2 T of the butter over medium heat; swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the shallots, cover. Reduce the heat to medium-low cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 15 – 20 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the green beans until fork-tender, 4-6 minutes. Drain; return to the pot. Toss with the remaining T of butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the green beans to a serving dish; top with the caramelized shallots.

This is a recipe from The Local Produce Party
