One of my favorite recipes is Green Beans Almondine! I was first introduced to this dish when I was a server at Boone Tavern Hotel in college. At the end of the dinner shift we always got to eat the vegetables that we left over and it is a wonderful and light dish! A great alternative to canned greens beans and perfect fresh from the garden.
1 and 1/2 lbs. green beans
4 oz. almonds, sliced
2 TBSP Olive Oil (or Butter)
Salt and Pepper to taste (I use Sea Salt)
Saute almonds in olive oil until lightly browned be careful to not burn. Steam green beans until tender. Toss with almonds and season with salt and pepper before serving.
