Green Beans Almondine

Yield1 Serving

Fresh green beans are delightful at any meal, but are a tradition at Thanksgiving. A simple recipe for this humble vegetable will complement your next gathering.


 3 cups fresh green beans, with ends snapped off
  cup slivered almonds
 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
 2 tablespoons soy sauce or gluten-free tamari
 Freshly squeezed lemon juice to taste

Pour olive oil into a sauté pan. Cook garlic for 30 seconds over medium heat. Add the green beans, and sauté until cooked to desired tenderness.


In a separate pan, toast the almonds over medium heat until a golden brown, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. This should only take a few minutes.


Once the green beans are cooked, add the toasted almonds. Toss with soy sauce (or tamari) and lemon juice.
