Description

This Green Beans Almondine recipe is so simple yet full of incredible flavor! Toasty almonds, crispy garlic, lemon zest, shallots, and chili pepper flakes bring it up a notch! Vegan.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 lb green beans, trim, removing stem end.
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, or use part butter.
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 fat garlic cloves, sliced thinly
  • 1 fat shallot, finely chopped
  • lemon zest from one lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • generous pinch red pepper flakes or Aleppo chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, more to taste
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Set a large pot of salted water to boil. 
  2. In a large skillet, or saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the sliced almonds and saute for just a few minutes, toasting. Add the sliced garlic, and shallot, lowe heat, sauteing until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon zest, black pepper and red pepper flakes, toasting one minute. Turn off heat. 
  3. Blanch the green beans in the boiling water, until tender-crisp and vibrant green. Drain or use tongs, to place them into the saute pan and return the heat to medium low.
  4. Season generously with salt. You’ll likely need more than you think, taste as you go.  
  5. Squeeze with fresh lemon juice, taste adjusting. 
  6. Turn out onto a platter or serving dish, getting all of the crispy bits from the pan. 

Notes

The green beans can be made ahead and gently reheated.
