  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed and cut into 3-inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup Diamond Hazelnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup minced green onion
  • ½ red bell pepper, julienned
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain. Immediately plunge into ice water; drain again and pat dry. Set aside.

In a large sauté pan, melt the butter and oil together over medium-high heat. Add the hazelnuts; cook, stirring, until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the green onion, red pepper, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the green beans; heat through, stirring, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.
