Green Beans in Balsamic Butter

This is a good way to enjoy green beans, hot or cold.

Green Beans in Balsamic Butter
- 1 lb fresh Green Beans
- 2 shallots (or 1/2 sweet onion), minced
- 1/4 Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tbsp butter

Steam Green Beans until aldente, remove from pot and set aside. Saute shallot/onions in a small saucepan with a little olive oil until soft and translucent. Add vinegar, bring to a boil, and then reduce to simmer until all of the vinegar has absorbed into the onions and there is almost no liquid left in the pan. Stir in the tablespoon of butter, transfer mixture to a bowl and let cool in the fridge until ready to use.
Before serving, heat a skillet with cooking spray, add beans and then Balsamic Butter, and toss to coat beans until heated through. Serve immediately, and enjoy.
