Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.


  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoon chopped toasted hazelnuts, (see Tip)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add green beans and cook, stirring often, until seared in spots, 2 to 3 minutes.
