Green Beans With Mustard Cream Sauce and Toasted Almonds
April 23, 2014

I steamed the fresh green beans in the microwave for 2 min 15 seconds, so they were crisp and vibrant green. I didn’t want the mustard cream sauce to overwhelm the freshness of the green beans, so I ended up drizzling the sauce on the top which is the way I will do it in the future as well. I do have some dijon mustard cream sauce left over because drizzling doesn’t take as much. That’s OK, it went into the fridge and will be warmed up and served over a poached egg for breakfast tomorrow. The dijon flavor in the sauce is subtle and mild, and it allows the flavor of the vegetables to shine through. Very nice side dish with good presentation.
