Then, trim the beans and cut them into 1
inch pieces. Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Blanch
the beans for about 5 minutes. Shock the beans in cold water and drain. Set them aside.
In a 3 or 4 quart saucepan, heat the butter/olive oil on medium heat. Add the
onion and cook for about 5 minutes minutes until translucent. Add the rice and
cook for 2 minutes more, stirring frequently.
Slowly add the wine, stirring constantly. Once the wine is just about absorbed, add 1/2 cup of stock to the rice.
Continue to stir until the liquid is almost completely absorbed,
adding more stock in 1/2 cup increments. Stir constantly to prevent the rice
from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Continue this, adding a little bit of broth at a time, cooking and stirring until it is absorbed, until the rice is tender, but still has a bit of firmness for
about 15-20 minutes.
Add in the green beans, green onion, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
