During winter, I always find it difficult to choose side dishes when I attempt to cook fusion or western dishes. I don’t usually have a problem with Chinese dishes though as a stir fry is always simple to whip up.
This is one of my “I don’t know what side dish to make, so I’m making this” dish. It’s easy enough and go well with baked chicken or even a steak. I’m abit of a nut fan (ah, pun intended), so I like to be generous with them. I used pistachios and pine nuts but I’m sure pecans or walnuts will be nice as well.
Oh, if you have any suggestions for a side dish, do let me know…. =)
1) Blanch long beans in salted boiling water. Drain.
2) Heat butter in a pan. Gently toast/fry nuts for 3-4 minutes. Spoon mixture on to beans. Season.
