  • 2 1/2 pounds green beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts or slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • About 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt


  1. 1. Rinse and drain beans; trim and discard stem ends. In each of two 12- by 17-inch baking pans, mix half the beans with half the oil; spread level.
  2. 2. Bake in a 450° regular or convection oven until beans are slightly browned and tender when pierced, 15 to 25 minutes; switch pan positions halfway through baking.
  3. 3. Stir half the nuts and butter into beans in each pan; continue baking until nuts are golden, 5 to 6 minutes longer. Pour into a bowl, add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne, and mix well. Taste and add more cayenne and salt if desired.
