Fill a large pot with about 5 quarts of water and bring to boil.

Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
Line a baking sheet with paper towels and spread the beans to dry.
In a large frying pan of sauté skillet, melt the ghee over medium heat. Add the olive oil.
Add the shallots and sauté until translucent, about 4 minutes.
Increase the heat to medium-high and add the beans and continue sautéing until heated through.

Transfer to a serving platter, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
Make Ahead: The beans can be boiled up to 1 day in advance. Cover in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use.
