Quick Zesty Green Beans

Need a new green vegetable recipe that is good all year long? Try this and add different seasonings and nuts - I especially like dry Ranch Salad Mix seasoning. Maybe even some spaghetti sauce?

1 pound fresh string beans, stem ends removed
1 T oil
1 tsp Old Bay Blackened seasoning
1/3 C pecan pieces
salt to taste

Bring large pot of water to boil. Add green beans which have had ends removed, return to boil and cook 1 min Ė beans should still be crisp. Drain beans, donít rinse.

In large skillet or wok add oil. Heat until very hot (skillet is ready when drop of water in oil sizzles). Add beans and cook about 1 min, turning often. Sprinkle on pecans and Old Bay. Turn beans and pecans to coat with oil and spices, cook about 2 min more or til beans and nuts are slightly browned. Salt to taste.
