Low FODMAP Lemon Green Beans with Pine Nuts

My go-to formula for creating a quick meal is protein + starchy veggie + green veggie. For example, I recently made a quick meal of broiled chicken breast, a microwaved “baked” potato, and these Low FODMAP Lemon Green Beans. The entire meal took about 20 minutes, was filling and tasted great! Win! Win! Win!

This recipe is filled with refreshing flavor thanks to fresh lemon juice and zest. Toasted pine nuts add a touch of nutty crunch. And although you can certainly cook them longer if you’d like, I like to just barely cook my green beans for even more crunch!
