A quick and easy side dish to dress up any meal. Turns a plain plate of string beans into a tasty, delicious and beautiful dish. A great side especially around the holidays. Goes perfectly with that turkey or roast you will making.
STRING BEANS ALMONDINE
STRING BEANS 1 WHOLE HEAD OF GARLIC SLICED 1/2 CUP SLICED ALMONDS 1/4 CUP OLIVE OIL SALT & PEPPER
Start by preparing your string beans.....snap off the ends and boil in a pot of water until as soft as desired. When done....drain and set aside.
In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan. Get the sliced garlic in. Give the garlic a 5 minute head start and then throw in the sliced almonds. Season all well with salt & pepper. I like to put a pinch of red crushed pepper in also but that's up to you. Cook and stir frequently until all are browned. It will happen quickly so keep your eye on it.
Now just remove from the heat and toss in your string beans to completely coat all. Give it a few minutes to rest together and there you go......
Give it a try....a great way to add such flavor without adding a lot of calories!!! ENJOY !!! ALL GOOD STUFF !!!!!
