Garlic, parsley, olive oil and Parmesan cheese enter into the tasty mix of flavors. This dish is bound to be a hit with your family; it pairs perfectly with different meats, fish and chicken.

  • 1
    Wash and trim the green beans.

    Add water to a medium-sized pot and heat over medium heat to bring to a boil. While heating the water, in a separate, small frying pan, begin preparing the gremolata. First, toast the shelled pistachios for about 5 minutes over low heat.
  • 3
    In a small, deep container, mix the chopped garlic, lime zest, parsley, Parmesan cheese and toasted pistachios. Set aside.
  • 4
    Once the water is boiling, submerge the green beans for 3 minutes. This will cook the veggie and give the beans a crisp texture. Remove from heat and drain. Immediately transfer the beans to a bowl filled with ice water. This will quickly chill them and preserve their lovely, green color. Dry with a paper towel.
  • 5
    In a medium-sized frying pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Incorporate the green beans and stir-fry them until they’re hot and coated with the oil, for approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the gremolata, stirring well.
  • 6
    Season the dish with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste.

    Serve hot, and enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • If you plan on using fresh green beans, I recommend cooking them the same day, or the day after you purchase them.
  • If you'd rather cook the green beans in a microwave, microwave for no more than 8 minutes in an airtight container with 2 tablespoons of water.
