Bringing It To The Table: Garlicky Green Beans


1.5 pounds fresh green beans, ends snapped off
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
2 ounces hazelnuts, crushed and lightly toasted
3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled


Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place beans in a large bowl.
Add vinegar, olive oil, garlic, and salt/pepper to taste. Toss the beans to evenly coat.
Transfer the beans to a baking sheet.
Place in the oven to roast for about 15 minutes until beans just start to get tender, but do not lose their snap.
Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
Add hazelnuts and blue cheese. Toss to combine and serve immediately.
