Green Beans with Shallots, Lemon & Thyme



 
If you are ever looking for a really delicious side dish for a dinner party, or even on a night when you just want to pull out the stops a little bit, or a holiday meal, this tasty dish ticks all the boxes!
 
Green beans and thyme have a natural affinity for one another.  Its like they were meant to be put together!
 
Likewise shallots . . . with their mild garlic tones . . . also a perfect partner with both green beans and thyme . . .
 
Throw in some lemon zest, and you have something very special indeed.  It highlights all the flavours perfectly!  You could also use lemon thyme and leave the lemon zest out altogether, but I have never been able to buy lemon thyme fresh  . . .  I have grown it in the garden, but someone who shall not be named pulls up my thyme every single year in the autumn, thinking it is a dead plant.  Ahem . . . 
 
Parmesan cheese also goes really well with this delicious combination of flavours!!  Just a light grating, not a drowing of course . . .  all things in moderation.
 
I could eat a whole plate of these beans and nothing else.  They are really that good!  Such a simple thing  and yet at the same time almost gourmet!
