Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil (1 tablespoon) in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the green beans (1 lb.) and salt and pepper to taste, and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender and beginning to brown on the outside.
  • Remove from heat and transfer to a serving platter.
  • Sprinkle the walnuts (1/2 cup) and crumbled blue cheese (4 oz.) on top.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you're not a fan of blue cheese, I recommend using crumbled feta, goat cheese, or queso fresco as a more mild-flavored substitute.
  • The provided nutrition information does not include any added sodium from seasoning to taste, any optional ingredients, and it does not take brands into account. Feel free to calculate it yourself using this calculator or by adding the recipe to Yummly.
