This side or I would eat this as a snack. It has a garlicy, crisp, squeaky bite to it! Tossed with almonds. Use tender, young, thin beans.

this is a great quick side, easy to make while your main dish is in the oven or on the grill. just be careful not to burn the garlic or it will be bitter! ive also used wine when i don't have broth if i want a little more flavor than water. Tastes great! And don't skip the almonds! I now buy slivered almonds just for this recipe but have found in a pinch crushing up some whole almonds works ok too.
