A little crunch topping of almonds and shallots liven up your green beans for the holidays and keeps them lighter than your traditional green bean casserole.
Ingredients
  • 4-6 cups green beans, cleaned
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 small shallots, sliced thinly
  • ⅓ cup slivered almonds
  • ½ lemon
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Cook green beans until tender crisp in salted boiling water then plunge them into an ice water bath. This will maintain their crispness and color. These can be made ahead and refrigerated at this point.
  2. When ready to serve. Saute shallots in butter and then add almonds. Brown both slightly. Add green beans and toss to heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the juice of a ½ lemon over and serve immediately.
