Green Beans with Hazelnuts and Gorgonzola

This dish is much healthier than its casserole counterpart. The Gorgonzola's rich, creamy texture offers a nice counterpoint to the crunchy, selenium-packed nuts. Briefly steaming the beans rather than boiling retains their vitamin C and B6 content.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • servings: 8


  • 2 pounds green beans, stem ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons nut oil, such as hazelnut, almond, or walnut
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup roasted blanched hazelnuts, coarsely chopped


  1. Step 1

    Steam green beans until crisp-tender, 4 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and toss with oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Gorgonzola and nuts.
