Green Beans with Brown Butter

File this one under quick and easy. This method of making green beans really gives them a nice punch of flavor. It’s a super easy way to dress up a classic vegetable — perfect for Thanksgiving. It will definitely be gracing my table this year!

So here it goes:

Green Beans with Brown Butter

Steam the green beans (I do 2-3 cups at a time for 4-6 people).

When the green beans are just about tender, melt 2-3 tbsp of butter in a saucepan. (Meanwhile, transfer the beans to a serving dish.) Bring to a boil and cook until the butter begins to brown. Quickly remove from the stove and pour over the beans. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve.

Voila! Simple as pie.
