I had a few fresh green beans that I needed to cook. I did not have enough for a meal, so I came up with this for a side dish. We loved it!

I decided to kick these up just a notch by adding celery onions and garlic to the saute. Fantastic!!! Had to ding it a star because it wouldn't have been as good without the additions. And DO NOT skip toasted almonds! Great mix of flavors and textures in this dish try my suggested additions! Forget the title I'd eat these everyday! Read More

Loved these green beans. Easy to make. I did roast the sliced almonds as recommended by other reviewers. The second time i made these: even better! Added fresh minced garlic to the sauté as a personal preference. Used regular mushrooms as they were what I had. Delicious. Loved the flavors and the crunch. Thank you. Read More

I steamed the beans for a couple of minutes before adding to the pan but I shouldn't have. It was still great but the beans were overcooked. I added the onion as recommended and probably more mushrooms. It was EXCELLENT! I toasted the slivered almonds in a pan over very low heat. They were excellent too. Read More

A pretty basic green bean recipe but very good and easy. Make sure you toast the almonds. Bacon and some caramelized onions would be great in this also. Read More

Really good recipe. I doubled it for a family event; added 1 caramelized onion should have used 2. Also added 2-3 cloves of minced garlic while cooking. Added toasted almonds and diced fried bacon as suggested by other reviewers. After I tasted it I added grated Parmesan cheese over the top. That completed the tasty experience! Read More

This dish was devoured at my work potluck. Simple but everyone loves it. My only confusion is that there are no onions in the recipe but there seems to be a lot in the picture of this dish. Read More
