Honey Glazed Roasted Green Bean with Pecan Recipe
1/4 cup honey
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp. brandy
2 tbsp rice or white wine vinegar
1 tbsp orange juice
generous amount of your favorite garlic seasoning blend
1 1/2 lbs green beans with ends removed, cleaned and dried
1/4 cup or more pecans
Combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Do this on a hot surface if the honey won’t blend, so the honey melts into the rest of the ingredients.
Put your green beans on a baking sheet and drizzle with some of the glaze so they are covered but not swimming in the glaze. You will have a fair amount let. Roast the green beans for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, put the pecans in a small baking dish and put 1 tbsp of honey in the bottom of the dish and add enough glaze to dissolve the honey. Put the pecans in the oven and watch them. They will probably be done in 10 minutes or so.
Combine green beans and pecans in a bowl and serve. You may have extra pecans- no worries. They’re delicious on a salad or even just for snacking.
