Unless I'm making my grandma's green bean casserole, we like 'em simple around here. The key is finding fresh, crisp beans.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add beans and shallots; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 1/2 cup water; cover and cook 5 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender.

  • Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add almonds; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring frequently.

  • Add almond mixture, lemon juice, and remaining ingredients to bean mixture; toss well.

  • Kids Can Help: For older kids who have practiced their cutting skills, let them trim the ends off the green beans with a child-safe knife. For the younger ones, teach them how to snap off the ends with their fingers.
