Lemon Hazelnut Green Beans are a delicious, flavor-filled side dish, and are a perfect choice for either a casual meal or a holiday feast!
Measure olive oil into a large skillet, and spread around to cover bottom of skillet. Heat on medium heat. Once hot (but not smoking), add chopped shallots. Cook, stirring often for 1-2 minutes.
Add green beans and broth to skillet. Stir to combine; cook (uncovered) for 9-10 minutes. When done, broth should have dissipated, and beans should be crisp-tender.
Immediately add garlic, red chili flakes, lemon zest, and hazelnuts to skillet. Stir, to combine. Cook for one minute, stirring OFTEN (so garlic doesn't burn), until beans are heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired. Garnish with additional hazelnuts and thinly sliced lemon peel, if desired. Serve immediately.
TIP: Substitute sliced, roasted almonds if hazelnuts are difficult to find in your area. Enjoy!
