French Green Beans with Garlic and Sliced Almonds

25 Jul

One of the items we have been receiving from our CSA in bulk are french greens. We get more than I know what to do with, which is usually just steam them and serve with a bit of salt and butter. It’s boring and not even very tasty.

Facing another two weeks with at least a pound of green beans, I turned to the trusty Internet for recipe suggestions. I found a recipe that was worth trying out (which means it looked easy and I had all the ingredients). The beans turned out delicious (or as Steve would say “they are good… you know… for beans.”) and were a cinch.

French Green Beans with Garlic and Sliced Almonds

1 lb green beans, rinsed
2-4 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 C sliced almonds
2 TBSP olive oil
1/4 C chicken broth (or water)
Sea salt and pepper


Put the green beans into a microwavable bowl and nuke for 4 minutes.

Heat oil in large saucepan over medium high heat. Add almonds and toast for about 1 minute. Add garlic and stir until it starts to brown, about another minute. Toss in green beans with chicken broth. Cover and simmer (low heat) for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
