Sauteed Green Beans with Sunflower seeds

29 Oct

I was farting around yesterday with some green beans i got from the ‘ol market, and I had some leftover shelled sunflower seeds. I threw them in with the green beans, and whad’ya know, they were quite tasty! I imagine that some toasted pine nuts, or some pepitas ( shelled pumpkin seeds) would be a nice substitute!


4 cups fresh green beans, cleaned

1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds

4 Tbl. olive oil

Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Saute green beans in olive oil over medium-high heat. Toss seeds into green beans, season with salt and pepper and serve.
