2 Cup 1/2" pieces Green Beans
4 Tbsp Butter
1/2 Cup, chopped Walnuts
1/2 Tsp Salt


Place washed and trimmed green beans in a gallon-size zip-lock plastic bag.

Poke holes in the top with a knife to allow steam to escape.

Place the bag in the microwave with the holes facing up.

Heat on high 3-6 minutes, until green beans are crisp-tender.

Do not overcook.

Check at 3 minutes

Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium heat.

Once melted, turn heat down to medium-low and let butter simmer until it turns brown.

Be careful! Butter burns easily, so you will want to watch it, turning heat down if necessary.

When the butter starts to give off a nutty aroma, it's ready

Toss the beans with the brown butter, chopped walnuts, and season with salt
