  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add in the garlic and almonds and stir to combine.
  2. Add in the green beans and toss to coat completely in the butter, almonds and garlic. Sauté the green beans until tender, about 5-8 minutes, being careful to not let the butter burn. If the butter starts to brown too quickly, simply turn the heat down and up the cooking time on the green beans until tender. 
  3. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
