NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
Directions
  • Bring 3 cups of water to a boil in a 5-quart saucepan. While waiting for the water to boil, trim ends off green beans. Place green beans in a colander or steamer basket. Place colander over the boiling water and cover with a lid, or place steamer basket in steamer and cover. Steam green beans for 2 minutes, or until crisp tender.

  • Meanwhile, place a non-stick small saute skillet over medium-high heat. Without any oil, add almonds and toss them lightly while sauteing; dry saute until almonds are toasty brown.

  • Remove almonds from heat and combine with green beans. Toss until well mixed. Season, to taste, with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Serve warm.
