Green Beans with Red Peppers and Walnut Oil
Servings: 6
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes


  • 1 pound green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 Tbsp. walnut oil
  • fine sea salt & cracked black pepper


  1. Fill a sauce pan with about 1″ of water and set a steamer basket into the pan. Place the green beans and red pepper into the basket. Turn burner to high.
  2. When the water is boiling (and steam is thus produced) start a timer. Cook for 5-6 minutes. The beans should still have a slight crunch to it.
  3. Transfer green beans and red pepper to a bowl. Drizzle with walnut oil; sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and several grinds of black pepper. Toss to coat. Serve.
