By now, you’re probably looking for really simple recipes that you can add to your holiday table. And if simple, but robust flavors are calling your name, these green beans are for you. This dish is also vegan, so it’s sure to please a variety of diets. Again, we’re using fresh green beans, but the flavor and crunch really can’t be beat.
To make these green beans you will need:
2 pounds fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup slivered almonds
1 teaspoon lemon zest
juice from ½ a lemon
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl toss the beans with the oil, garlic and salt. Spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet (you may need to two baking sheets) and roast for 15 minutes. Rotate pans in the oven and continue roasting for 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven and place beans in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, zest and almonds and toss to combine.
