Almond Green Beans

An Asian inspired dish.



  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a sauté pan, cook almonds in oil until they start to brown. Add garlic to pan for one minute more to cook garlic (it can burn easily, so watch it).
  2. The tricky part - remove the almonds and garlic from the pan leaving the oil behind (I have no good way to do this yet, leave a comment if you think of one).
  3. Cook washed and snapped green beans in the oil with salt and pepper (optional) until beans are to the tenderness of your liking (about 5-10 minutes).
  4. Remove beans from heat, add back the almond/garlic mixture.
  5. Enjoy! They're good as leftovers, if you can control yourself from eating the entire batch!
