Green Beans with Pine Nuts

1 ½ pounds green beans, stems removed
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
¼ cut pine nuts

Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Add the green beans and salt and cook just until tender, about 4 to 6 minutes.
Drain well in a colander.
In the same pot, over medium-high heat, combine the butter and pine nuts.
Cook, stirring frequently, until the pine nuts are lightly toasted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the beans; toss to stir well.
Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.

I've never been a big fan of green beans, but these are quite good. Of course, fresh beans are the best. I loathe canned or frozen. Blech!

I don't have any other recipes for green beans and should seek out some more. They're not my most favorite of vegetables, but they're so good for you! ;)
