Equipment

  • Skillet

Ingredients

  • 6 large carrots cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 24 green beans trimmed top and bottom
  • 1/3 cup salted butter
  • 4 slices prosciutto torn into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the carrots in a steamer over a saucepan of simmering water for 5 mins. Add in the beans and steam for a further 2 mins. The vegetables should be just tender
  • Melt the butter over medium heat in a skillet. Add in the torn prosciutto and cook for 3 minutes until starting to turn a golden color. Add in the walnuts, garlic, and chopped thyme and cook for a further 2 minutes. By this time the prosciutto should be crispy.
  • Drizzle the maple syrup over the prosciutto mixture and give it a good stir. Add in the green beans and carrots and toss well until everything is combined. Cook for around 1 more minute to make sure everything is heated through.
  • Season to taste and serve.

Notes

For meal prepping: If you would like to prep in advance you can always pre-steam the carrots and green beans and pop aside until ready to prepare the rest of the recipe. Heat for about 1 minute longer once added to the prosciutto mixture to ensure they are heated through.
