Sometimes there’s nothing better than an old-fashioned, tried and true side dish like these green beans. When our kids were still at home I could always count on this dish to be eaten without any complaints. I still make them whenever they come over for dinner. 😉
Green Beans Almandine
- fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
- a little butter or olive oil,
- sliced almonds
- a pinch or two of sea salt
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the beans.
Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes, or until just tender.
Drain the beans and set them aside.
Heat a little butter or olive oil in a heavy pan.
When hot add a pinch of salt and a generous handful of sliced almonds.
Sauté the almonds until they start to brown a little.
Now add the green beans, stir well and sauté everything over medium heat.
Keep stirring and sautéing until the beans are very tender and the almonds crisp up.
Season with a sprinkle of salt and serve.
