String Beans with Rosemary Pecans

Serving Size: Makes 8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups pecans
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 pounds string beans

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 300°F.
  2. Place the nuts in a bowl. In a small, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the olive oil. Add the rosemary and stir until aromatic, about 1 minute. Pour the seasoned oil over the nuts. Add the sugar, cumin, salt, black pepper and cayenne and stir to coat the nuts evenly. Transfer the nuts to a baking pan.
  3. Bake, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are toasted, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a plate and let cool completely. Can be made 1 week in advance
  4. Meanwhile, heat a large pot of salted water. Cook the green beans until al dente, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and run under cool water to stop the cooking. Toss the beans in a mixing bowl with a little olive oil, then transfer to a serving platter and top with the rosemary nuts.
