Quick, easy, delicious

Adjust the cooking time as needed.  I had average sized beans and they took closer to 9 minutes to be completely cooked.  Loved the almonds.

Nice Change of Pace

It's nice to have some ideas on how to change up the preparation of fresh green beans.  These were good and easy. 

Nice change

Easy change for green beans, to quick-sauté rather than steam.  Served as part of CL's "sweet & tangy pork" dinner.
