Green Beans Almondine

I love fresh green beans and this almondine recipe
makes them extra delicious for everyday
and special enough for holiday dinners.
Rinse 1 pound fresh green beans.
Trim ends.
Place in a  microwave-safe dish with a sprinkle
 of water. Cover and cook 5 minutes drain well.
 You can also stem cook them with a little water in
covered saute pan for 5 minutes.
 Drain well!
 Add the butter, seasoned salt, and almonds.
Saute 2 minutes until the almonds are toasted.
Toss it all together and continue cooking,
stirring frequently, for another 3-5
 minutes just until the beans are tender.
Sprinkle with lemon juice.

*You can also make it all in the saute pan: steam the beans, covered, for 5 minutes with just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Drain well. Push to the side and add the butter, seasoned salt, and almonds. Continue as above.



  1. I like the idea of sauteing the beans & almonds in butter.

  2. I am always running out of ideas for green beans--this is a great recipe. So fresh. And with just a tiny bit of butter, it's healthy. Thanks for joining us at Foodie Friday!
