Today I’m sharing a quick and tasty vegetable side dish! Fresh green beans are a healthy addition to any meal. Add a little pizzazz with the addition of almonds & lime. I could eat these every day..
Green Beans with Almonds & Lime
1 lb fresh green beans
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
dash salt & fresh ground pepper
1 lime, zest & juice
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Cut the ends off the fresh green beans. Place beans in a medium skillet with 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; lower heat, cover and simmer 5 minutes. Drain water out of pan and place skillet with green beans back on stove. Add the olive oil and sauté for a minute. Zest the lime and add to the beans. Squeeze the lime juice over the beans.
Add the sliced almonds and sauté for a few more minutes. Plate & serve.
