My mom used to make this quite a bit and I loved it and it was easy enough that she would let me help her in the kitchen and make it. However, I don’t think I have ever made these before as an adult, which really surprises me since I loved having them growing up.
1 lb. frozen French-style green beans
1 T butter (add more if you’d like)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 tsp lemon juice
Cook green beans per the instructions on the package and drain.
Melt butter in a pan and add almonds. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until almonds start to get golden.
Pour almond/butter mixture over green beans. Add lemon juice. Toss to coat.
Did I change anything? My mom always used canned French-style green beans, which would work fine too.
What did the family think? Everyone in our house who eats green beans loved them. I bet you can guess which one of our lovely dinnertime friends doesn’t eat them. 🙂
