Quick Green Bean Dish

8 Apr

I love Trader Joe’s frozen green beans.  I keep them on hand whenever possible.  Your local grocery store probably offers a generic frozen green bean.  All you need for this is –

1 Bag of Frozen Green Beans
2 Shallots, sliced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 Cup of Orange Juice
1 Tablespoon of Butter
1/3 Cup of Almonds, Sliced and Toasted*
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Cook the frozen green beans in the microwave.  If you are anti-microwave, cook them on the stovetop.  Once they are cooked put them in a colander and run cold water over them.  In a saute pan heat two swirls around the pan of extra virgin olive oil, butter, garlic and shallots.  Season with salt and pepper.  Toss with green beans on medium/low heat.  Serve warm!

Toasted Almonds

So easy.  I like sliced.  If you use slivered be sure to watch it on the heat because the thinner the pieces, the quicker they burn.  Heat extra virgin olive oil with garlic in a pan and add almonds.  Saute and season with salt and pepper.  Toss over medium heat until brown.  I have a tendency to make more than needed since I “test” them as they cook…

Enjoy!  Simple C’est si Yum!
