Seared Yellow Wax Beans and Arugula


Yield: 4 to 6 servings


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes



⅓ cup olive oil

1 pound yellow wax beans, trimmed

3 shallots, thinly sliced

3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1½ teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

Kosher salt, to taste

2 cups baby arugula


1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the wax beans, shallots and garlic, and cook, tossing as needed until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the lemon juice, thyme leaves and red pepper flakes. Season with salt. Cook until the beans are just tender, while still retaining a bite, 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the arugula leaves and cook until just wilted, 1 minute more. Transfer to a platter and serve.
