|Brightly colored crisp-tender green beans are a simple elegant side to any dish|
1/2 package of Trader Joe's Frozen French Green Beans
1/2 yellow onion, sliced thin
1tbs butter, preferably organic or grass fed
1tsp minced garlic
3tbs sliced almonds, toasted in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes or until fragrant
1. Heat a large pot of water to boiling. Add green beans and boil 5 minutes (do not overcook!).
2. Drain the beans and then quickly pour them into a large bowl of ice water (this will make them stay a vibrant green color).
3. Meanwhile, heat butter in a saute pan over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent and browning. Add the cooked green beans, stirring until fully incorporated with the onions. Add the almonds and stir well until the entire dish is hot and ready to serve. Enjoy!
