Serving Size: 4
Total Time:


  • 0.75 Pound green bean
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Place the green beans in a steamer basket set over a large saucepan of boiling water. Steam until bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

2. In a medium skillet, heat the oil. Add the shallot and cook over high heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar; stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and add the beans. Season with salt and pepper, toss well and serve.
