How to make it

  • In a large pot bring salted water to a boil. Carefully drop, by handfuls, green beans into boiling water.
  • Return water to boil for 5 minutes.
  • Immediately drain the beans and plunge them into ice water for 5 minutes.
  • Drain and wrap in a clean cloth; set aside.
  • In the same pot heat butter over medium heat. Lightly brown the garlic. Remove from heat and set aside for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the garlic from the butter and discard it.
  • To the garlic flavored butter, add onions and thyme.
  • Cover the pot and braise the onion over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until soft and transparent.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high, uncover the pot and slighty caramelize the onion.
  • Stir the green beans into the pot, after 2-3 minutes, deglaze the pot with red wine vinegar. Season to taste with sea salt, pepper and nutmeg. Sprinkle with parsley.
