A new way to serve an old favorite! Green beans get great flavor from roasting, and satisfying crunch from the almonds.
- 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup slivered almonds
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Spread green beans in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Roll the green beans in the olive oil so each one is nicely coated. Liberally salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven. Flip green beans. Spread minced garlic and slivered almonds. Place back in the oven and bake for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. (Keep an eye on the almond slivers. You want them browned but not blackened.)
- Serve immediately.
