Green Beans With Garlic Butter and Almonds

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Steamed broccoli or cauliflower may be used in place of the green beans, the chili flakes may be omitted if desired I like to add them in or you may adjust to heat level. --- this is very good!

These are wonderful! The flavor of the garlic butter with the green beans is outstanding. I love almonds with green beans so that was a plus, too. Thanks for sharing!
