Garlic Almond Green Beans
- 1 lb green beans I recommend Haricot Verts
- 4 tablespoon sliced almonds optional
- ½ c water
- 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon vegan butter
- ¼ teaspoon salt
This step is optional. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Place almonds on a baking tray and roast them for about 5 minutes until slightly brown on the sides.
Meanwhile, place beans in a large pan, add water and salt and cook on a medium-low heat 10-15 minutes or until desired tenderness.* (See the notes)
When all water evaporates, in the same pan melt vegan butter, add sliced garlic and sauté for 1 more minute. Remove from the heat.
Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
If beans are already nice and tender but there's still some water in a pan, simply drain it and proceed to the next step.
