1. Place pine nuts in a large nonstick skillet. Toast over medium heat until lightly brown, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Watch carefully - the nuts can go from browned to burnt very quickly. Transfer to a plate.
2. Steam beans in a large saucepan. Cook until al dente, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain water and return beans to saucepan.
3. While beans cook, heat oil over medium heat in the skillet used for the pine nuts. Add onion slices; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in smoked paprika; cook until onions are soft, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add to beans; cook over medium heat until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in salt and pepper.
4. Transfer beans to a serving
