  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes

  • 25g slivered almonds
  • 15ml extra virgin olive oil

How to make Sautéed green beans?

  1. Rinse the green beans under cold running water. Pat dry with a towel or spin dry in a salad spinner. Trim the ends of the beans.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the minced garlic to the skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the green beans to the skillet in an even layer. Do not stir for 3 minutes. Then, stir and cook until the beans are tender-crisp, about 3 to 4 minutes more.
  5. Sprinkle the slivered almonds evenly over the green beans. Cook, stirring frequently, until the almonds are lightly toasted, about 2 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine and coat the green beans evenly with the oil, garlic, and almonds.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.

Tips and Variations:

  • For extra flavour, add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice.
  • Substitute walnuts or pine nuts for the almonds.
  • Use asparagus instead of green beans. Snap off the tough ends and sauté as directed.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Garnish the green beans with sliced lemon wedges, chopped parsley, or grated parmesan cheese.
  • Serve the green beans with a simple side of rice, mashed potatoes, or crusty bread.
  • Garnish with sliced radishes, cherry tomatoes, or orange segments for a pop of colour.
