Green beans and almonds work together to make a delicious and healthy side dish.Ingredients
3 pounds (1.4 kg) fresh green beans, stem ends removed
½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) butter-flavored buds or butter-flavored cooking spray
1/8 teaspoon (0.6 ml) garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoons (7.5 ml) crushed dried thyme
2 tablespoons (30 ml) slivered almonds, toasted
Cook beans in a large pot of boiling water. Reduce heat and simmer until crisp tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain.
Toss with butter-flavored buds, garlic powder, and thyme. Serve hot, garnished with toasted almonds.
Tip: to toast the almonds, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 350°F (180° C) oven until fragrant and brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Shake the pan once or twice so that they toast evenly. Check after 3 minutes. Once they begin to color, they will brown very quickly.
