Green Beans with Almonds


  • 1 pound fresh green beans, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Ground black pepper


Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a high-sided saute pan.  Add salt and green beans to boiling water and cook until just tender.  Drain beans and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.  Return the skillet to medium heat and add the butter. When butter is melted, add the almonds and cook until golden brown.  Return the green beans to the pan, along with the lemon juice, add salt and pepper, to taste.  Cook until heated through.
