Instructions Checklist
  • Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds, cook 2-3 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently, being careful not to burn. Add 2 Tbsp. of the butter, Worcestershire, lemon juice, and cumin. Cook until butter has melted, stirring constantly. Set aside on separate plate.

  • Melt remaining butter over medium-high heat. Add beans, cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, sprinkle almond mixture over all. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tips

Note: May toss and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb flavors.

Cook's Tip: The cumin acts as a "blender". It helps to tie the other flavors together without imparting a distinct cumin flavor.

Made it with fresh green beans; steamed them for 4 minutes in the microwave, then transferred to the pan with a tablespoon of bacon grease instead of the butter, cooked for another 2-3 minutes. Delicious! Read More

I wanted a green bean dish for Thanksgiving that was a little healthier and lighter than the traditional casserole. I’ve always liked the combo of green beans and almonds, so when I found this recipe it seemed like exactly what I’d been looking for! I substituted the canned green beans for an 18 oz. bag of frozen ones- they were out of fresh! After preparing the almond mixture and setting it off to the side, I sautéed the beans in a tbsp. of butter and a bit of salt & pepper, in the same pan as the almond mixture. When they were cooked through I added back the almond mixture and worked it through the beans, coating them with the sauce and distributing the almonds evenly until it was looking thick and gorgeous. It was really delicious! Everyone loved it, even my very picky husband! I’ll definitely be adding it to the side dish repertoire! Read More
