🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
4 15 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🥒 12 oz haricots verts
  • 🧊 0.25 cup water
  • 🧂 0.25 tsp salt
  • 🧈 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 🧄 1 Tbsp shallot

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 12-inch skillet

📝 Instructions


We developed this recipe with beans that were about 1/4 inch wide. If your haricots verts are skinnier, decrease the water to 3 tablespoons and decrease the covered cooking time to 2 minutes.

Step 2

Arrange haricots verts in even layer in 12-inch skillet. Add water and sprinkle evenly with salt. Cook over medium-high heat until water is sizzling. Cover and continue to cook until beans are bright green and crisp tender, about 3 minutes longer, tossing beans twice during cooking. Reduce heat to medium. Add unsalted butter and minced shallot and continue to cook, uncovered, tossing beans frequently, until water has evaporated, about 1 minute longer. Season with salt to taste, and serve.
