When weekday dinners aren’t the bane of my existence… weekday side dishes are.

It always seems like the same rotating selection of 3 different dishes made to get your family to at least pretend they’re eating a couple of vegetables. Of course -let’s not kid ourselves here, green beans are the furthest thing from spicing up weekday dinners… but at least you get to arm yourself with another side dish for your roster.

Sometimes it’s the little things, like discovering a new recipe for supper that can make a long weekday night even a little bit better.

So despite being a rather uneventful dish, we can at least be grateful that this recipe is incredibly easy, fast (and my favorite part) relatively hands off -which means less stirring time and more time spent awkward kitchen dancing to “Dancing With The Devil’s Daughter” by Jo Hikk

Are you ready?

Lets get started.

  • 3 cups of green beans (fresh is best, but I just opted for what I had -which was frozen)
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • A pinch of Himalayan Pink or Sel Gris Sea Salt

Looking for a different taste?

Try substituting regular mineral salt with Bold Jalapeno, Heated Habanero, or Diablo’s Ghost Sea Salt for a little extra heat.

Or amplify the garlic by using Roasted Garlic Sea Salt or our Tuscan Sun Sea Salt Blend -and then get ready to pucker up!

In a large pan, start by melting the butter over a medium-low heat.

Add the green beans, garlic, onion powder, and sea salt to the pan and stir until the beans are evenly coated.

Sauté the beans until almost tender. This will take just a couple minutes if using fresh beans and approximately… well honestly I don’t know how long it took with the frozen ones.

Too busy busting my awkward two year old dance moves I  suppose!

Once the beans are tender (or once you take a dancing break and realize that you’re still cooking like I did) add in the slivered almonds. Don’t be afraid to add in more for extra crunch!

Continue to sauté the beans until crisp and tender.

Then get ready to dish up, cause you’re done!

There we have it!

A super simple and super speedy green bean side dish to get those extra veggies on your plate!

Health & Happiness,
