Green Beans Almandine

Green Beans Almandine

  • 1 lb. green beans, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 C. techina
  • Water
  • Roasted almonds, slivered


Trim the green beans, and break or cut the larger pieces in half. Place in steamer basket and steam until fork-tender. Rinse under cool water to stop the cooking process, and let drain completely. Place in an attractive serving dish and set aside.

Add just enough water to the techina to give it a runny, salad dressing consistency. Pour over steamed beans and toss gently to coat. Scatter almonds over the beans. Serve warm.

Green Beans Almandine Sounds delicious! I shall certainly try it. I do something similar - when beans are cooked, add a tspn or two of sesame oil and a tspn of low salt soy sauce and toasted sesame seeds. Also delicious! Reply
