Don't let the simplicity of this recipe fool you! These beans are awesome, both in taste and presentation. The walnut oil adds a subtle nuttiness and, if at all possible, should not be substituted. The toasted walnuts also contribute great flavor and at the same time dress the beans up visually. Perfect.
We thought this recipe was okay, but I wouldn't call it exceptional. The walnut oil was an expensive ingredient, but didn't seem to add that much extra flavor. I'll probably try the recipe again, though (since I have more walnut oil), but next time I'll add the chopped garlic suggested by the other posters.
This was Wonderful! I did not have walnut oil so I just used Extra Virgin Olive oil. I also used about a tablespoon of minced garlic since my family doesn't like anything without garlic. It was a hit even though most of my family doesn't like vegetables. Thanks!
I threw this together as a last minute veggie side for guests. I used frozen green beans, defrosted and substituted olive oil and dried parsely and it was still amazing and so easy. One of my guests said that she usually didn't like green beans, but these were an exception.
Awesome! I used olive oil because I couldn't find walnut oil at the store. I also added some dried cranberries as suggested by some others. I halved the recipe and still had a huge bowl of green beans. You are going to need a HUGE pan to sautee the green beans if you do the whole recipe. I generally hate vegetables and I had no ideas green beans could be this delicious! And it was super-easy to make!
This was really good and tasty! I will definitely make it again.
Made this tonight for supper. In fact, everything we had tonight came from All Recipes. This was pretty good. Hubby liked it a lot. He likes crispy green beans. I like mine mushy. Used craisins as someone suggested. Looked really pretty with the walnuts and craisins. I cut back on the butter and the walnut oil to one tablespoon each, which was plenty. Even cooked the walnuts in the butter and walnut oil mixture before adding the green beans.
These are SOOO good! My new fav way to prepare green beans. I only needed to bake the walnuts for 5 or 6 minutes or they would have burned. I did not have walnut oil and I cannot afford any at this time so I used olive oil and it still came out great!
