Low FODMAP Lemon Green Beans with Pine Nuts is a vibrant and lemony, plant-based side dish made with just 4 simple ingredients.


  • ¼ cup pine nuts
  • 1 ¼ pound (566 grams) green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest + 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place pine nuts in a dry skillet. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until nuts start to turn golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Once the pot of water is boiling, add green beans and cook for 2-4 minutes until just tender-crisp. Drain green beans under cool, running water to prevent further cooking. Shake dry before transferring to a large bowl.
  5. Add dressing to green beans and toss. Transfer to a serving platter.
  6. Serve warm topped with toasted pine nuts.
