Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim green beans and slice into 2-inch sections.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat margarine over medium-high heat.
  3. Add green beans and sauté 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly so beans cook evenly.
  4. Add broth, oregano, and pepper; sauté for 20 to 30 seconds.
  5. Add onions. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until beans are tender-crisp.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small nonstick pan over medium heat, dry-roast almonds, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle bread crumbs and almonds over cooked beans and serve.

These beans are just about perfect with everything you put them with. I've made them with an apricot chicken and fried catfish now and their flavors match great. I use frozen pearl onions in a cream sauce but everything else I leave the same. I would recommend this dish to anyone! Thanks for posting.

Terrific! I thought these were wonderful! I used fresh beans and half a fresh chopped onion. Also, I used water in place of broth (I added some salt and a few herbs to try to make up for it...) I skipped the breadcrumbs like another reviewer suggested and didn't think it lacked anything. This was really easy and it went together so fast. I think I have finally found a recipe that makes me like fresh green beans.

So easy and so good, Thanks Carla for a recipe I used at our Thanksgiving table, just that little something special to serve on a holiday. I did use frozen green beans, but they where good and don't think I missed anything in the final outcome. Everyone at the table enjoyed these, I'll certainly be making them again.
