  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green beans and toss to evenly coat with olive oil. Cook, stirring occasionally for even cooking, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add walnuts, white balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper; mix to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally so walnuts don't burn, until beans are soft but maintain some crunch, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and sprinkle with lemon juice and red pepper flakes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you do not have a basil-infused olive oil, use 1 teaspoon dried basil or 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil.
  • If you are using a fresh lemon, grate and add 1 to 2 teaspoons zest for extra flavor.
  • You can also substitute almonds for the walnuts.
