"Fancy" green bean side dish for $3
I had to bring a side dish to a dinner party where the main course
was a seafood lasagna. So I made this up--for less than $5--and
received many serious compliments and recipe requests.
From farmer's market:
1 pound of green beans ($2.00)
1/2 red bell pepper ($1)
Big scoop of chopped garlic
1/4 c. of sliced almonds
1/2 c. shaved or grated parmesan
lemon juice, salt, garlic pepper
Pour a liberal amount of olive oil in a skillet. Toss in the garlic
and stir it as it browns. Add the sliced almonds and saute the mix.
Add snapped green beans (about 2" long pieces) and saute until beans
are bright green. Add diced red bell pepper. Stir for a couple of
Add a dash or two of salt plus a squeeze of lemon juice (and a little
garlic pepper if you have it). When ready to serve, heat and toss
You can make this up to half a day before serving.

Thank you for this recipe! I acutally didn't have any almonds so I used chopped walnuts. Amazingly it was delicious, but I really want to try it with the almonds. Thank you!CC,
Yeah, This is my life now!
