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.

Delicious! I made these using fresh long green beans from the farmers market. I used 3 cloves of garlic. We loved the fragrant spices in this dish. Made for Zaar Hits 1-2-3 Tag Game 2011.

These beans are nicely spiced and have a wonderful fragrance when they are being tossed together. Made using Frozen French cut beans suggested in the header and toasted the slivered almonds. A side we will enjoy again. Thanks for the post.
