Purple String Beans with Caramelized Sweet Onions
These beautiful beans are tossed with flavorful onions and fresh parsley.
1 pound purple string beans, trimmed
½ Walla Walla sweet onion, chopped
2-3 tablespoons butter
¼ cup freshly-chopped parsley
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Fill a large pot with water, bring to a boil. Drop in the beans, cook briefly until just tender, approximately 1 minute. Remove from heat, drain and rinse with cold water to stop the beans from cooking any longer. Set aside.
2. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, add the butter and onions, cooking over low heat until onions are tender and caramelized. Add the beans, turn heat to high and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with the parsley.
