Vegan Thanksgiving Recipe # 5: Shallot & Hazelnut String Beans

This is a blend of a few recipes I've seen online. So, it's still my own version, but heavily inspired by others I've seen out there.

Photo from Cooking Light
1 pound string beans (cut off stems)
Olive oil (to your liking)
5 shallots (sliced thinly)
1 garlic clove, minced
salt & pepper
1/3 cup hazelnuts (chopped)
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves (must be fresh, not dried!)
1/2 tablespoon dried Thyme

Pre-heat oven to 425.
In a baking dish, toss string beans, shallots, garlic, and salt & pepper with olive oil (lightly coated).
Roast for 15-20 minutes, until string beans become lightly browned.
After pulling out of the oven, immediately add the zest, hazelnuts, Thyme and parsley.

Enjoy the fresh, light, and healthy taste as a side to your Thanksgiving meal!
