Fresh Green Beans

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by John DOH

An explanation of how you can get a lot more from simple ingredients by adding a "pairing" flavour. This one goes exceptionally well when served as a "side" to roast pork. Check your beans that they feel "crisp" and not "leathery" (Do they "snap" easily, and leak a bit of juice? If not, don't buy them)

Excellent! What a great way to make fresh green beans something really special. Almond extract? Who knew? What a great addition that really revs up the almond flavor! Thanks John!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean the beans, "tip and toe" them, and cut to 1" lengths.
  2. Boil salted water in a pot and add the almond extract when boiling.
  3. Place the beans and almond slivers in a steaming basket and cook until just about done (still some "crunch" left in the bean, but not chewy).
