This is a quick, bright and tasty side dish. It seems to me that most people boil their vegetables, but this is completely unnecessary! The goal is simply to cook your veggies in a way that makes them healthy and delicious. Sautéed in a little butter will do the trick. Especially if you use a nice thin fresh variety of green bean!
This simple side can go with just about anything. A brined and roasted chicken
with a nice citrus compound butter
would really do the trick!
The toasted almonds add nice texture and a little nutty variety! Couldn't we all use a little more nutty variety!?
