Garlicky Green Beans with Almonds Recipe
Giving your normal Thanksgiving vegetable a garlic kick this year!
1 lb. Green Beans, fresh
5 large Garlic Cloves, peeled and cut into thin slices
6 Shallots, peeled and cut into thin slivers
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Salt
Black Pepper, fresh ground
1/4 Cup Almonds, chopped
1 tsp. Lemon Zest
1/4 Cup Parsley, very finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Snap off the ends from the green beans. You may want to cut the beans in half, vertically and horizontally. Peel and cut the garlic and shallots, then place with beans in a mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, and olive oil, and toss until the beans, garlic, and shallots are well coated with oil.
Use a roasting pan, and make sure the spray with a nonstick spray (you may want to cover the pan with foil first), and arrange the bean mixture in a single layer. Roast for 12 to 15 minutes, until beans are slightly shriveled, and shallots and garlic are lightly browned.
While in the oven, toss together the almonds, lemon zest, and parsley. When the beans are out of the oven, add them to the almond mixture and your ready to serve.
