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

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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.

Very good and easy, I had already toasted my almonds, so I just added them in with some of the butter to the main pan.
