Fresh Green Beans
Salt and Pepper
Trim ends from green beans and cut in half, if desired. Heat an inch of water and some salt in a skillet until boiling. Add green beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes. Drain green beans and set aside.
Melt butter in skillet and add almonds. Toast almonds until they are golden brown, stirring frequently. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute, then add green beans. Add salt and pepper to taste.
