  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


A side of green beans and almonds is a delightful addition to chicken or steak, and the garlic-butter sauce drenches these fresh veggies with irresistible flavor. With a handful of almonds sprinkled on top, you have a professional looking dish to serve alongside your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!


  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 2 medium cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
