..Green Beans with Crushed Almonds

March 13, 2013


This is probably one of my all time favorite ways to consume vegetables.  Green beans are a pretty non-offensive health food to begin with (who can really hate on them?) but with the addition of crushed almonds they really turn into a magical food.  Great way to get your iron AND some protein - hooray! Super easy recipe below.

1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds (crushed or chopped via a food processor).
1.5 lbs of fresh green beans (trimmed and washed) .
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or (EVOO)
Salt, Pepper, dash of garlic powder.

Drizzle your EVOO around the pan on medium heat.  Toss in your green beans and dash a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder over them. Move them around the pan until they are pretty evenly coated with the EVOO. Cook for 5 minutes on their own and then toss in the crushed almonds.  Cook for 5-7 more minutes on the same medium heat until the beans are slightly tender and the almonds are toasted. Enjoy!

  1. these looks delicious and healthy -- thanks for sharing this! i'm always looking for new things to try making for dinner! xo


  2. So good! Green beans are my favorite vegetable (true story) and this is such a fun way to make them even more tasty!

  3. I'm not really a fan of almonds but this looks deeeeeLISH! I saw this on your Instagram too & was hoping you'd post a recipe (not that I probably wouldn't have been able to figure it out, but you just make it so easy)

    PS - I don't typically ask for comments but I have a post up asking for some styling help. Would love your input! :-)

  4. My friend made these once and they were delish!


  5. I always see this dish in restaurants, but I've never tried it myself. I love green beans (especially sauteed) so I'm excited to try this!
