Green beans always have a place at the dinner table. There are so many different ways of cooking and serving this delicious vegetable that it can be quite difficult to decide on just one. If you need a nudge in a particular direction, this recipe for green beans with caramelized onions is one of my favorites and has always been a hit at dinner parties, or just a causal dinner with a couple friends!
1 pound organic green beans
1/2 medium onion, very thinly sliced
3 tablespoons organic, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
3 pinches sea salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon black ground pepper
Wash green beans, dry well and set aside.
Heat large saucepan to medium.
Add half the olive oil, then add the thinly sliced onions and allow to simmer until the onions begin to turn darker and caramelize. Once they are a light amber color, remove them from the flame and the pan and set them aside on a paper towel to cool.
Add the remaining olive oil to your pan and add the green beans. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until they begin to soften but are still crisp. Remove from the stove.
Add the caramelized onions into the pan with the green beans. Add the salt and pepper on top, and toss so the ingredients are evenly distributed. Place on a serving platter and enjoy.
