I adapted this from Simplified it, reduced the portion size and the oil content. Delicious, simple flavors that work amazingly well together. For such a simple dish, this is a very elegant, pretty, and tasty dish. My family scarfed it down.

This is beautiful! I halved the recipe, and decreased the onion and red pepper down to 1/4, as I felt they would overpower the green beans. Maybe they grow onions and bell peppers larger here....but everything seemed to be in perfect proportion. This is delicious as posted, but I will toast the almonds next time to bring out their flavor. Thanks for sharing!

A delicious way to "fancy-up" green beans. I also liked that there was no added salt, pepper, etc. Just the flavor of the vegies shining through.
