Haricots Verts with Shallots and Thyme Butter

Haricots Verts with Shallots and Thyme Butter

Delicately thin and full of flavor, haricots verts require very little accompaniment to truly shine. These French-style specialty beans are best with a little butter, a little shallot, and just enough of a saute to make them crisp-tender.

 

Cook Time 20 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 4-5 sprigs Thyme
  • 1 bunch Shallots, diced
  • 1 lb Haricots Verts stem end removed (no need to remove the other end)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions
 

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add thyme and saute, stirring frequently, until very fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove and discard thyme sprigs.
  • Add shallots to your thyme-infused butter and saute, stirring frequently, until caramelized and starting to crisp, 4-6 minutes.
  • Add haricots verts and stir to combine. Add a few tablespoons of water, cover and steam for 3-4 minutes. Remove cover and cook until water evaporates and beans are crisp-tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.
