Green Beans with Almonds and Thyme

Sunday, April 4, 2010
From SimplyRecipes. Excellent and our new favorite way to serve green beans.

  • 2 lbs of (fresh or frozen) green beans, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme (or 2 t dried)
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds, lightly toasted
  • Steam the beans for 5 minutes and proceed directly to the skillet. Melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium high heat. Whisk in half of the fresh thyme (1 Tbsp), the Dijon mustard and garlic salt into the butter. Add the beans to the skillet and toss until heated through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and the remaining 1 Tbsp of thyme.
  • Serves 8.
