As I am deathly allergic to cashews, I made it with almonds and thought the effect equally delicious...but feel free to experiment with different nut combinations...
Roasted Green Beans and Cashews Gourmet | February 2009
3/4 cup salted roasted cashews (3 ounces), chopped
1/2 cup chopped shallots (about 4 medium)
2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 500°F with rack in lower third.
Toss green beans with cashews, shallots, oil, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, then spread evenly in a large 4-sided sheet pan.
Roast, stirring occasionally, until green beans are tender and nuts are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
