Everyone loves an elegant side dish and this one is sure to impress. It’s quick, simple and delivers tons of flavor!
French Style Green Beans
1 pound haricots verts (fancy name for french green beans), ends trimmed
2 Tbsp. olive oil (or butter)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
4 slices bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the haricots verts and cook until just tender, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon to an ice bath, to stop the cooking process. Drain and pat dry on paper towels. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil (or butter) over medium-high heat. Add the drained haricots verts, slivered almonds, garlic and salt and pepper to taste, and cook, stirring, for 5-6 minutes, or until just heated through and crisp-tender. Top with crumbled bacon and serve immediately. Serves 4-6.
