Green Beans with Crushed Toasted Almonds Recipe
2 small shallots, thinly sliced widthwise into rings
1 1/2-pounds green beans, trimmed
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
Place a medium skillet over medium heat with the oil. Add the shallot to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the green beans to the pan and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the beans are bright green and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the almonds.
Transfer the beans to a serving dish and serve immediately.
