From Nicole Kammerer

2 lbs. haricots verts or regular green beans

extra-virgin olive oil

1 small onion or 3 small shallots, finely sliced

1 garlic clove, minced

Wash and trim the beans, then steam them for approximately 5 minutes or cook them in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Drain thoroughly, then pat dry. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, cook the onions or shallots until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and beans and cook over medium heat until the beans are just tender. Add the pine nuts and salt to taste.
