Heart Healthy Green Beans with Shallots Recipe
Preheat the broiler on high.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots. Sauté the shallots for 4 minutes, or until softened. Transfer shallots to a baking pan and arrange in a single layer. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until browned. Set aside.
In a large saucepan, blanch the green beans in simmering water for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly tender. Drain in a colander.
In the large skillet, heat butter and remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add the green beans. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, or until beans are heated through. Season with the salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with shallots. Serve warm.
