1 (9-ounce) package frozen French-style green beans
2 tablespoons sliced almonds
2 teaspoons reduced-calorie margarine, melted
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper


Cook beans according to package directions. Drain well, and transfer to a bowl.

While beans cook, place a small heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add almonds, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until toasted. Set almonds aside.

Combine margarine and remaining 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Pour margarine mixture over beans, tossing gently to coat. Sprinkle with almonds.
