Green Bee-ans, the Perfect Bee Fit Food
One of my favorite holiday recipes is Green Beans with Toasted Garlic and Almonds. It is a great health y option for those who don't eat salads. Enjoy, Bee- Fitters!
Ingredients: • 1 TBSP kosher salt + ½ tsp to taste • 2 lb. fresh green beans, washed and trimmed • 1 TBSP olive oil • 2 cloves garlic, chopped • 1 cup sliced raw almonds • ¼ tsp black pepper (or to taste)
Directions: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 TBSP salt, then the green beans, and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the almonds and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the drained green beans to the skillet, season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and toss to coat. Serve warm or at room temperature.
