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 so delicious, even without almonds! (Never tried it with almonds because I didn't have any on hand). Have made it about 3 times now and it makes a great side dish. Microwaved the beans for 2 minutes instead of 4 and have used garlic powder in the past, when I had no minced garlic on hand. Now I just buy a jar of minced garlic - makes things so much easier. I use about 1/4 chicken broth - it makes a difference. Water doesn't seem to bring out the flavor as well in this dish. I have chopped up scallions before and thrown it in and have put in some diced caramelized onions for added flavor. Very good and highly recommended! It's the only way I make french green beans!
