ROASTED GARLIC AND LEMON GREEN BEANS
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
1 small shallot, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1 teaspoon lemon zest
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium sized glass baking dish, stir together beans, olive oil, sliced shallots and garlic. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until beans are tender. Remove from oven and stir in toasted almonds and lemon zest.
My kids love these beans, so this recipe is a winner in my book. They are easy enough to make for a week night meal, but fancy enough for a special occassion.
Who Dished It Up First
My friend Kristen served these beans when she had our family for dinner one night. I knew I had to get the recipe when my kids gobbled them up. Kristin shared her cooking method with me and this is my best guess at a written recipe.
