  1. Put the beans in a pan of salted water and boil for 4-6 minutes, or until they are crisp-tender (cooked but still with a bit of bite to them). Drain, then refresh under cold water so they stop cooking and retain their color.
  2. Transfer to a serving dish, top with the butter and toasted hazelnuts, and serve with roast chicken or lamb.
  • To toast the hazelnuts, place them in a frying pan (without any fat) and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until evenly toasted. Alternatively, place on a baking sheet and roast for 8-10 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C).
