Roasted Brown Butter Ghee Green Beans with Macadamia Nuts

Roasted vegetables are a time-honored classic, and green beans are a regular part of our side dish rotation. Over the Christmas season, we enjoyed our take on green bean casserole. While we’re often utilitarian eaters, having our green beans with a little olive oil and salt and pepper, we occasionally like to jazz things up.

Recently, we were gifted a jar of Tin Star Food’s Organic Grassfed Brown Butter Ghee from our friends at Real Everything, and we knew we needed to do something special with it. Brown butter sauces are rich, and complex, and brown butter ghee kicks that up another level. This was a side dish that became an entrée when we made it, and we think you’ll eat it up just as quickly. Check out Tin Star’s other products; we’re fans of quality, lactose-free dairy products.

Ingredients
1 lb fresh or frozen green beans
4 cloves garlic, pressed
3 Tbsp Tin Star Organic Grassfed Brown Butter Ghee
1/2 C salted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

Method

In a small saucepan, melt ghee on low heat. Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Once melted, add in pressed garlic and cook for approximately 4 minutes, until slightly browned. Add crushed nuts for another 2-3 minutes.

Mix green beans with the ghee, garlic, and macadamia nut mixture on a baking pan, and bake 10-12 minutes until the green beans begin to crisp.

Allow to cool for 3-5 minutes, and serve.
