Algerian Green Beans With Almonds

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

Garlic and spices. If you wanted to use canned beans, heat them up and pour sauce on them so it will not take long to make, or frozen green beans will get you closer to fresh tasting.

We didn't enjoy these much. I used frozen green beans like the intro says, cooking them as the bag says. The second step shouldn't say water should it? I used a bit of extra garlic, canola oil, sweet paprika, the ground clove, and I toasted my almond slivers in a dry pan which made this recipe better. I mixed them into the beans. Made for Welcome to Algeria!
