    KissKiss's Note:

    This is the perfect side dish for any entree - beef, chicken, or fish. I always have the ingredients on hand, but it always tastes super-fresh. Very clean and bright flavor. I use a double boiler for this, but if you don't have one, prepare the beans according to package directions and use a separate saucepan for the sauce.

      It was a nice way to dress up green beans. The only problem I had was that the beans were quite mushy. I don't know if I did something wrong or if the variety I used were just not fresh enough to hold up the cooking process. But it was a very tasty side dish nonetheless. Made for ZWT5.

      This was a very nice side dish. I slivered my own almonds (ok so they were a little chunky, but I tried) and use Trader Joe's Haricots Vert, I added extra fresh lemon juice and a good sprinkling of pepper and Kosher salt at the end. Thank you KissKiss for sharing your recipe, made for ZWT 5 by one of the Cooks With Dirty Faces
