My sister-In-law, Pam, makes this dish that I truly love. She was kind enough to share her recipe with me.

It's so simple with only a few ingredients, is absolutely delicious and you can easily double the recipe. Thanks, Pam. 6/21/14

2 to 3


Stove Top


1 Tbsp
minced garlic (use more or less)
2 Tbsp
almonds, slivered (use more or less)
1 Tbsp
olive oil (approximate amt)
thin pat butter
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 medium
can french-style green beans
salt & pepper or lemon pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Sauté minced garlic and almonds in olive oil and butter on medium to low heat being careful to not scorch.
Open and drain the beans. Now add a splash of lemon juice then the drained beans to the pan. Continue cooking until warmed through and flavors have time to marinate, about 20 to 30 minutes or so.
NOTE: Pam and I slightly chop the slivered almonds but that's your choice. She also cooks this in an electric skillet at times, which keeps it warm until ready to serve..
