These green beans are easy and delicious. They are a bit tangy, spicy, and crunchy with the almonds. My family's favorite!

I loved this dish! What a delicious and elegant recipe for company. I always use fresh green beans.... there's really no comparison to others. Adjust the lemon pepper seasoning to your own taste starting with 1 tsp. Read More

Two stars as written if for no other reason than that this recipe calls for an extraordinarily large amount of lemon pepper seasoning and I knew better not to use that much. Curious I measured it out in a prep bowl to see just how much that amount of seasoning looked like and was amazed--if I didn't know better I would think there was a misprint in the recipe. On the other hand there is nothing extraordinary at all about green beans with butter and almonds which would have made this only average at best even using a more realistic measure of the lemon pepper seasoning.

I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was excellent! As one reviewer may have said there is nothing special about lemon pepper and almonds in green beans but its simplicity makes it easy and delicious. It was great to find something new and interesting to try with the extra summer green beans! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Sounds too simple. But I got raves at all my Holiday dinners for them. The kids even had seconds (which was really weird). Works with frozen petite beans as well as blanched fresh ones. Read More

Very easy quick and tasty addition to veggies. My 17-year old said "awesome". I used a little less lemon pepper then called for and added regular pepper and salt. Would be good with a number of veggies. Next time I'm trying broccoli. Read More

We love this recipe! So easy and quick but delicious. I only had a little over a 1/2 pound of green beans and that wasn't going to feed 6 this evening. So I decided to add a few new red potatoes. I don't have a steamer just put the potatoes in a bowl with a splash of water covered with plastic wrap and microwaved until fork tender. Repeat with the green beans and proceed with the recipe seasoning with the lemon pepper to taste. Worked out great! Everyone gave this one 5 stars. Thanks for sharing! Read More
