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


  1. Place green beans with 2 tablespoons of water in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook for 6 to 7 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Serve immediately.
