French Green Beans with Roasted Hazelnuts

I love green beans and serve them often at my house. They are simple to make and everyone likes them. In this recipe, I toss them in toasted hazelnut oil and add chopped hazelnuts, a squeeze of lemon, and coarse sea salt. I roast the hazelnuts myself, but you can use already roasted ones and skip that step if you like. Enjoy!


16 oz French or regular green beans

1 TBSP roasted hazelnut oil

1/2 cup raw hazelnuts

1/4 of a lemon

Maldon or other coarse sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Spread hazelnuts on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Roast the hazelnuts for 15 minutes or until lightly browned, shaking the pan halfway through roasting.
  4. Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the hazelnuts into a clean dish towel.
  5. Rub the hazelnuts in the dish towel to remove the bitter skins.
  6. Place the hazelnuts on a cutting board and roughly chop.
  7. Fill a medium saucepan with 1/2 inch of water and a pinch of sea salt.
  8. Add the green beans and bring the water to a simmer.
  9. Cook covered until tender, about 5 minutes.
  10. Drain the water from the pan.
  11. Add the toasted hazelnut oil and chopped hazelnuts to the green beans.
  12. Squeeze the juice from the quartered lemon over the beans.
  13. Sprinkle with the coarse sea salt and toss well.
  14. Serves 4.
