French Green Beans with Roasted Hazelnuts

 

I love green beans and serve them often at my house. They are simple to make and everyone likes them. In this recipe, I toss them in toasted hazelnut oil and add chopped hazelnuts, a squeeze of lemon, and coarse sea salt. I roast the hazelnuts myself, but you can use already roasted ones and skip that step if you like. Enjoy!
