GREENS BEAN ALMONDINE

GREENS BEAN ALMONDINE
  • 1 lb green beans
  • 1 cup almond slivers
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Bring water to boil in a large pot. Make sure to salt your water. Blanch to green beans to your liking, I like them al dente. Heat the oil with almonds until they become golden in colour, set aside. Drain your beans, toss with oil and almonds. Season with salt and pepper. I love green beans with almost ant meal. Try it and let me know what you think!

That looks good. I like to "toast" the almond slices in a bit of butter and add the juice from one lemon to my green beans almondine.

yummy! I love your easy steps. The addition of almond slices add some crunch to the food. Sometimes I cheat by microwaving the beans for a few minutes, heh
