Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice and water.
Bring a large stockpot filled with water to a rolling boil.
Add 1-2 pinched of sea salt to the water and add green beans. Continue cooking until green beans are bright in color, about 5 minutes. While the beans are cooking, begin toasting the pine nuts.
To toast the pine nuts, bring a small skillet to medium-low heat. Add the pine nuts to the warm skillet. Let the pine nuts toast on one "side" for about 1 minute. With a spatula, stir the pine nuts around the pan. Continue toasting for about 30 more seconds. Remove and place aside.
Once the green beans are bright in color and tender, transfer them to the ice bath. This will prevent them from continuing to cook. Once cooled, stain the green beans.
To assemble, place green beans in a bowl or serving dish of choice, pour the melted ghee over them, and lightly salt with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon sea salt. Gently toss together with a fork. Sprinkle the toasted pine nuts over beans before serving.
