I made these again last night but this time I used the frozen french beans from Trader Joes. I steamed the beans instead of boiling them I also doubled the mushrooms and also the slivered almonds. browned the mushrooms and almonds in the butter and then added the steamed beans with a couple of shakes of garlic powder everyone loved it cooked this way I will be making this many more times.

I thought this tasted okay. It is basically a green bean amandine with mushrooms added. I have made similar recipes but typically steam the green beans in the microwave and buy a good brand of frozen ones. This took quite some time to make! I doubled the recipe and still only got about 3 servings so the calorie count is a little high too. Read More

While this is not a recipe that is particularly inspired it does not diminish the fact that it is delicious with great eye appeal. I didn t bother with the sliced almonds and cooking them with the mushrooms. Picking out a few almonds from my dish of mixed salted nuts and chopping them up worked just fine! Read More

This recipe was an easy way to get veggies on the table - I would add some minced garlic and try it with olive oil instead next time to give it a bit more kick and make it lighter. I heart green beans! Read More

A simple good recipe. I changed the bean cooking time to 5 minutes and sauteed the almonds separately to keep them nice & crunchy. Read More
