Blistered Garlic Green Beans


1 pound Green Beans, washed and trimmed

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

4 cloves Garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

1/3 cup Slivered Almonds, toasted


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and cook for 2 minutes once the boiling resumes. The green beans should be bright green but still have a crunch when bitten. Drain and place the green beans in an ice bath to stop the cooking.

Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the green beans to the hot pan, season with salt and pepper.. Sauté the beans with the garlic for 4-5 minutes. Stir occasionally to evenly cook the beans. Transfer to a serving dish and toss with the toasted almonds.
