A simple vegetable dish is perfect for the holiday meal - no rich sauce or cheese is needed. Pecans add a holiday flavor, and with MURAL OF FLAVOR, no salt needed!

  • 1 lb. fresh green beans
  • 1/2 Cup pecans
  • 2 TB. butter or olive oil
  • 2 tsp. SESAME SEEDS
  • 2 tsp. MURAL of FLAVOR
  • 2 tsp. honey

Wash the beans, discarding any less than desirable beans that are limp or have spots. Cut the stem end off. This can be done a day ahead of time and the beans placed in a zip top bag in the fridge.

To cook: Bring a pot of water (at least 2 quarts) to a rolling boil. This takes up to 15 minutes. Add the green beans and cook 2 minutes. Drain and rinse the beans to stop the cooking, but leave them warm. While the water is coming to a boil, heat the butter/oil in a medium pan and simmer on low with the pecans. Once they are lightly browned, add the SESAME SEEDS and MURAL OF FLAVOR. Once the beans are boiling in the pot, drizzle the pecan mix with the honey, stir regularly, then when the beans have been drained and rinsed, add them to the pan and toss with the seasoned nut mix. Place in a serving bowl. Cover the bowl with foil and place in a warm place until ready to serve - the oven turned off after the turkey has been pulled out is perfect.
