  • 1 pound thin green beans
  • 24 baby carrots, halved lengthwise
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts (about 2 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps thickly sliced
  • 3 plum tomatoes—peeled, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and carrots and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a large skillet, toast the pine nuts over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer the pine nuts to a plate to cool.
  3. Heat the oil in the skillet until shimmering. Add the mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and green beans and cook, stirring, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the tomatoes are just warmed through, about 1 minute. Transfer the vegetables to a platter, sprinkle with the pine nuts and serve.
