Green Bean Almondine Recipe

This is a really quick easy recipe that can be served warm or chilled for a nice summer side dish.  The beans and lemon are rich in vitamin C, the almonds are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, and the garlic is anti-inflammatory.

2 lbs. Fresh Washed Green Beansgreenbeans 004

2 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

3 Clove Garlic minced

2/3 cup sliced almonds

1/2 lemon juice

Steam green beans approximately 4 minutes until they become bright green in color.  On high heat, in a nonstick skillet place the almond slices stir constantly until  the almonds release their oils and begin to become crisp (about 2 minutes) Remove the almonds from the pan.  In the same pan heat the olive oil and garlic until the garlic begins to become soft.  Add the green beans, almonds and squeeze the juice from 1/2 lemon.  Toss and remove from pan and serve. Enjoy.

    Hi Lana,

    Thanks for asking. We have recovered from the swine flu which is a big relief. I am still fighting lyme disease but I still have several more weeks on antibiotics ahead of me. The fatigue is the hardest part right now. I hope all is well with you and all your boys. 🙂

    I read the swine flu post. Now lyme, you poor thing. Aside from the usual RA and Fibro rants, I am doing fine as are the boys. Financially, I have been dealing with a lot. Otherwise, I know I am blessed. Thanks Joann for asking.

    Hope you are feeling better soon.
