Slender haricots verts need little embellishment. Here they're tossed with a good dose of shallots and pine nuts. Once it's cooked, the flavor mellows considerably. If you can't find the tiny French green beans, substitute regular green beans and increase the cook time in boiling water to five minutes to ensure they're done.
