I can’t take credit for this recipe, It is courtesy of Whole foods,one of my favorite places to shop.
I do love Green Beans and this is a perfectly delicious and healthy recipe!

Green Beans With Shallots And Almonds

Serves 6 to 8

Serve these green beans on a large platter with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the top.
They make a great side dish for holiday meals as well as roasted fish or grilled shrimp.

Salt and pepper to taste
1 pound fresh or frozen green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

How To Cook:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and light golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add shallots to hot, drained green beans.
