Green Beans with Shallots and Breadcrumbs

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2009


  • 2 pounds green beans
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons store-bought seasoned breadcrumbs
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add green beans, and blanch until bright green, about 5 minutes. Drain, and transfer to ice-water bath. Let stand until cool. Drain, and pat dry.

  2. Heat oil in a large straight-sided skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add beans, and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  3. Stir in breadcrumbs, and cook for 2 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
