Green Bean Almondine is a simple, crowd-pleasing side dish that's full of flavor! Featuring fresh green beans, sliced almonds, butter, and lemon juice.
Have ready a large bowl filled with ice water. Fill a large pot about a 1/3 of the way with water and place over high heat. Bring to a boil and add green beans.
Boil for 6 minutes (or just until al dente), remove from the heat with a slotted spoon and transfer to the bowl of ice water. Drain well and set aside.
Add the butter to a large pan over medium-low heat, and allow it to melt. Add the almonds and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, just until toasted. Do not allow butter to burn.
Add the green beans, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the pan and stir to coat.
Continue over medium-low heat, stirring often, just until the green beans are warmed through, 2-4 minutes.
