OMG!! Never expected this to be one of my favorites for the Quest, but it sure is!! I made this using canned French Style green beans (what I had on hand) and only made 1/2 of the recipe. I made it twice, once with just the sliced almonds and then again today with toasted sliced almonds, ding, ding, ding, it's a winner. So many times the saying rings true, keep it simple. I was worried that the honey would make it too sweet for our tastes, but it is very subtle, just get a slight sweetness at the end. Toasting the almonds made a huge difference, highly recommend it, and we will be having this way from now on. Thanks so much for posting this recipe Lynn!! It's a keeper!!!
