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 Beans
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.
