Yum! I cut the beans into 1 inch pieces and cooked them for 10 minutes. After roasting the almonds in the butter, I added the cooked beans to the same pot and mixed it all together, so the beans borrowed some of the buttery flavour too!

Delicious way to fix green beans! I sliced the beans lengthwise in half and par boiled them for 5 minutes. When I sauted the almomds I let the butter get a little brown then put the drained beans in the pan and mixed it all together. Great flavor!! Thanks, Karen for a great new side dish!!
