This green bean dish is very addictive. Ever since I had it at thanksgiving last year, I can’t get this green bean out of my mind. What makes this green bean so great, you asked? Butter. Lots of it. Don’t roll your eye just yet. Give it a try. Butter is not bad for you. What kills you is the portion size. I am not a big fan of green beans, but I love this dish. Can’t tell you how great it is. You have to try it yourself.
Green Beans with Toasted Almonds
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed.
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tablespoon whole grain dijon mustard (I use Maille Whole Grain Dijon Mustard)
1 teaspoon garlic salt (I use Penzeys garlic salt)
1 tablespoon dried thyme (fresh will be even better)
1/4 cup sliced almond, toasted.
1. Cook green beans 5 minutes in boiling water, covered. Drain beans and then put the beans in a bowl of ice water. This step is to keep the bright green color of the beans.
2. Heat a pan over medium heat and then add butter. When butter melts, add mustard, thyme and garlic salt. Saute for 30 seconds.
3. Drain beans and put them back to the pan. Saute for about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with toasted almond.
