This is a combination of Recipes #25787, Haricot Vert - French Green Beans With Garlic and Sliced Almonds, and Green Beans To Impress. I love all the flavors and couldn't just pick one. They're even better the next day! Use fresh green beans and DON'T use the powdered Parmesan in a can.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the beans in a pan of boiling salted water (about 1 teaspoons salt) and cook for 3-5 minutes until firm but not raw, drain well. Or, alternatively, microwave with a little water for 4 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in a pan, add the olive oil and heat, add the almonds and onions and cook for 3 minutes, or until the almonds are lightly browned.
  3. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add the beans, salt and pepper to taste and toss.
  5. Add the chicken stock.
  6. Cover and cook until desired tenderness, about 5-10 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle beans with Parmesan; serve immediately.

I added lemon pepper, which I think made it extra yummy. Lemon juice would probably work just as well if you like a little tartness.
