Time to Prepare:  20 Minutes




Ingredients for Sautéed Green Beans with Almonds:

2 lbs x washed and trimmed fresh Green Beans

2 ounces x Slivered Almonds (skinless Almonds cut into shoestring pieces)

4 Large Cloves x Garlic (sliced)

1 Cup – Pinot Grigio

1 Lemon – for the Juice and Zest

1 Cup x Olive Oil



Heat a pan on high (to be used for sautéing all the Green Beans)

Blanch the Green Beans:  Boil washed and trimmed fresh Green Beans in salty water (salty like the ocean).  After two minutes, drain the water and quickly rinse the beans in cold water to stop the cooking process.  Set aside.

First cook the Almonds in the hot oil to a lightly browned color.  Remove the Almonds from the Oil, and replace with the Garlic, and also add the Green Beans.  In the hot temperature, you should hear the Green Beans and Garlic sizzling!
