  • 8Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 large red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 Tbs. garlic-flavored olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • Lemon slices, for garnish, optional
  • Hawaiian salt, black salt, or fleur de sel, for garnish, optional

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat with cooking spray.

2. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and red onion, and blanch 3 minutes. Drain, then pat vegetables dry with paper towels.

3. Whisk together oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper in large bowl. Add beans and onion slices; toss to coat.

4. Group beans and onion slices into 8 bundles (about 10 to 15 beans each), and tie each bundle with 8-inch piece of kitchen twine. Place bundles tie side down on prepared baking sheet. Bake 7 to 10 minutes, or until bean ends begin to brown. Flip bundles with spatula so tie side is up, and bake 7 to 10 minutes more, or until all bean tips are brown. Transfer bundles to serving plate, and garnish with lemon slices and Hawaiian salt, if using.
