Wash & snip green beans. In medium pan low heat, steam the green beans covered in ½ inch of water until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. Set aside.

Slice the onion thinly, should be about ½ cup. Heat the EVOO in a pan medium heat. Add onions, sauté for 3 minutes. Add sea salt, reduce heat, and cook covered for 5 minutes or until soft. Uncover, raise the heat to medium high cook for 10 minutes until browned, stirring often.

3

Grind walnuts in a food processor. Add the cooked green beans and onions process thoroughly. Add miso or lemon juice, Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil and pepper process for a few more seconds, until blended.
