Green Beans with Brown Butter and Pine Nuts
- 2 (1-pound) bags cut green beans, frozen
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 stick butter
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
- 1/2 cup pine nuts
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place green beans with 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook for 6 to 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. As the butter bubbles it will start to turn brown and give off a nutty aroma. Once it has reached a light brown color, add garlic, cooked and drained green beans and pine nuts. Toss to combine and saute for 1 minute until heated through. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
