The toasted smoky flavors in this fast sauté make it a warm addition to any winter meal.


  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toasted hazelnuts (see Tip)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Tip: : To toast nuts & seeds on the stovetop: Toast in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the water; cover, reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes for tender-crisp or 6 minutes for tender. Remove from the heat and stir in the bacon, hazelnuts and salt.
