It was about the time that the taster and I started getting serious that I really started getting into cooking. Of course I cooked up to that point, but I had a lot of grilled cheese and tomato soup from a can many a nights while I was in college. One particular summer stands out in my mind. I started getting a little more creative and made things like blueberry martini’s and sushi, but our standard summer meal was grilled fish and green beans almondine.
Once it started to feel like summer around here, I knew just what I wanted and a throwback meal was in order. Sure the grilled swordfish was great, but green beans almondine has to be one of my favorite ways to have green beans. Crisp beans, crunchy almonds and flavorful garlic all in one dish.
Green Beans Almondine – 2 servings
8 oz green beans, trimmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp sliced almonds
Heat large pan over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add green beans and cook for about 3-4 minutes until tender crisp. Add garlic, butter and almonds to pan and keep on heat for about one more minute.
