  • 8 cup small green beans, ends trimmed
  • 2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh or 3/4 Tbsp crushed dried rosemary
  • 5 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp grated lemon rind


Arrange green beans in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 8 to 12 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge beans into cold water to stop the cooking process; drain.

Spray a sauté pan with cooking spray. Over medium-high heat, add green onions, and sauté until tender. Add green beans, walnuts, rosemary, and lemon juice. Cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with lemon rind.
