Green Beans with Toasted Walnuts & Balsamic

Here's what you need:

4 tsps extra virgin olive oil
4 tsp garlic (minced)
1/2 cup walnuts (toasted and chopped)
2 tsp aged balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 lb fresh green beans (trimmed)

How to make them:

Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat.
Add garlic and cook, stirring until the garlic is barely showing signs of turning brown, about 30-90 seconds.  
Immediately pour into a large mixing bowl to stop cooking.
Meanwhile add 1 to 2 inches of water to a large pot fitted with a steamer attachment, cover and bring to boil over high heat.
Add green beans to steamer, cook covered until beans are crisp tender, about 4-5minutes.
Transfer the green beans to the bowl.
Add walnuts, balsamic, and salt.
Toss to coat then ENJOY!
