Fresh green beans are so much better tasting than canned and frozen and they’re so quick to make! Just wash them, trim them, and boil for 4 minutes. Want something fancier? Here’s my go-to recipe that can be personalized to fit your taste and they’re still under 10 minutes from start to finish.
- About 1 pd fresh green beans, washed, ends trimmed, and cut into 2-3" pieces
- 4 tbls olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- ¼ cup chopped almonds
- Wash, trim, and cut the green beans into 2-3" pieces. Boil in salted water for 4 minutes. Drain and dunk in cold water to stop them from cooking. Dry on paper towels or clean hand towel.
- In the meantime, place the garlic and oil in a saute pan and heat on medium until hot. Add almonds an green beans. Toss until heated through (about 4 mins).
