Almandine Green Beans

Sunday dinner at family's house is such a great tradition. It's nice to visit and all, but seriously - I won't lie - it's really nice to not have to cook. Alright, I can't really just sit back and relax, I do have four kids after all. This simple dish was part of one Sunday dinner menu and it was so yummy and simple I just had to share. I also learned something new; almandine means "garnished with almonds". It's sound fancy and smart too. ;)

*This recipe serves four, but it's pretty easy to double for more hungry dinner guests.

 

Almandine Green Beans

1 lb. fresh green beans, rinsed and ends trimmed 


1/2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tbsp. butter (organic, real butter) *opt.

1 clove garlic, minced

sea salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup slivered almonds

Heat a skillet and lightly toast the slivered almonds. Now set the almonds aside and heat the olive oil and butter in the skillet. Add the garlic until it starts to sizzle then toss in the green beans, salt, and pepper. I like to saute the beans on med-high heat while stirring it around, kind of like stir fry. Once the beans are tender with some nice toasty tan lines turn off the heat and sprinkle the almonds on top.  
Enjoy!
