Spiced Chestnuts:

Teriyaki Green Beans:

  • 2-2 ½ lbs. Trimmed green beans
  • 1 tablespoon Harissa Olive Oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ cup Teriyaki Balsamic


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Score the tops of each chestnut with an ‘X’ and place on a wire rack lined baking sheet.
  3. Toast in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the shell begins to curl. Remove from the oven and place in a kitchen towel-lined bowl.
  4. Gather the warm nuts together, in the towel, and squeeze together. Set aside to cool completely.
  5. Increase oven temperature to broil. Toss green beans with olive oil and spread out evenly on a large baking sheet. Place in the oven and broil for 10-12 minutes, or until the beans are charred.
  6. While the beans are broiling, combine garlic, ginger and Teriyaki Balsamic in a large bowl. Once the beans have broiled, remove from the oven and add to the bowl, toss to coat.
  7. Return the dressed beans back to the baking sheets, place in the oven and broil an additional 1-2 minut, just until the garlic and ginger are fragrant. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  8. Once the chestnuts have cooled, remove shells and roughly chop the soft inner nuts. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt.
