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
1/4 cup chopped shallots
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped oregano
2/3 cup blanched almond slivers, toasted
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. Add parsley, oregano, salt and pepper and toss gently. Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with almonds and serve.

The fat in these green beans comes from healthy olive oil and almonds. This side dish is a very nutritious extra to serve at your holiday feast. To get started with your own healthy meal plan, check out the Fat Loss Factor program. Enjoy!
