Green Bean Almondine

I made this for my mother who wanted "western food". We ate this with some pasta. It made for a great side dish! I will definitely make this again and its so simple, healthy and tastes good. Does not get better than that!


About a cup and half of green beans with their ends chopped off
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sliced almonds
About 6 grape tomatoes sliced in half
Juice of half a lime
salt and freshly crushed black pepper


Heat oil in pan and cook green beans, till tender but still crisp and crunchy. Stir often to not char the beans. I think they were on for about 5 minutes I could be wrong. Add almonds and stir till almonds are toasted. Toss in tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add lime juice and mix together. Serve warm.

sometimes simple foods are the best... guessing this dish will be great with plain rice as well,maybe add some shrims :)

Hi Zita, yes! but I have always been afraid of cooking shrimp. Maybe I will have to try it soon and overcome my fear!

TT :-) You crack me up!! Life with TT was so fun :-)

Btw, my lips are sealed, your secret is safe with me - wink wink :-)

You have certainly been productive - very yum recipes, from the beans to the matzo ones, not to mention the eggs and chicken saag. Good work!
