Sautéed Green Beans & Almonds


This simple and crunchy green bean side dish pairs well with meat or fish. Search for slender, unblemished beans for tenderness and the sweetest taste.

This recipe is from my cookbook, Wandering Palate.

Servings: 2
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7-8 minutes


2 tablespoons butter or coconut oil 
1 teaspoon garlic powder  
1 teaspoon onion powder  
2 cups green beans, stems removed 
½ cup sliced almonds  
salt, to taste  


1. Heat a skillet set over medium heat. Add the butter or coconut oil along with garlic and onion powder to taste.

2. Add the green beans and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the sliced almonds and sauté with the green beans until the almonds are lightly toasted and the beans are tender, about 2-3 minutes.
