, small, firm, thin
,peeled, chopped (or onion)
or Extra virgin olive oil
In a large pot, bring the water to a boil.
Add the green beans and cover with a lid.
Blanch the green beans cooking them for 3 to 5 minutes. Check the texture with a fork, the green beans must stay firm but tender.
Drain and rinse under cold water, this will keep the green color of the green beans!
Just before serving, warm the butter in a skillet, add the shallots, garlic and saute for about 1 minute or until golden and fragrant.
Add the sliced almonds and roast/saute them for 1 minute until slightly brown. Stir often to avoid them from burning.
Add the green beans and stir with the cooked shallots, garlic, and almonds to blend the flavors. Add salt and pepper, and saute briefly for no more than 2-3 minutes.
Deglaze with lemon juice - it means you will use the lemon juice to create a tasty sauce with the oil that sticks to the skillet.
Serve immediately as a side dish for any meat or fish. Top up with extra chopped fresh basil.
