    Hey Jude's Note:

    A quick, tasty recipe. The almonds pick up a mild garlic flavor. This is really good with super fresh, right out of the garden, green beans!

      This recipe is simple to make, and the flavor is fantastic! We made it for 15 people on Easter and everyone loved it--even the kids! Thanks Hey Jude.

      My husband made it as written, except he added a chicken bouillon cube to the water for added flavor. Our daughter liked it -- my husband and I thought the garlic flavor overwhelmed the almonds. Next time, we would try putting the garlic in the water to cook the beans and saute the almonds separately.
