Top Review by COOKGIRl

I agree that 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla would be too strong in this recipe. I cut the amount of vanilla in half and it
gave the freshly steamed green beans a lovely, delicate flavor. Shallots replaced onion powder and a small garlic clove minced was also added. Dry vermouth subbed for wine which I was out of but I think gin would work well, too. Heated up the olive oil, threw in the dressing ingredients minus the extract, cooked on medium heat for about 1 minute then stirred in the vanilla extract. We really enjoyed this with an omelet and crusty French bread.

  1. Cook green beans as directed on package, do not overcook. Drain. Meanwhile when beans are cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan; stir in the wine, vanilla, onion powder, salt and the pepper. Simmer for 2 minutes.
  2. Toss the butter sauce with the green beans. Top with the toasted almonds.
  3. To toast the almonds, spread the almonds in a single layer on a piece of aluminum foil. Bake 350' for 3-5 minutes.
