The green beans in this recipe are cooked in two parts: first blanched, then sauteed. You can easily blanch the beans ahead of time, put them in the fridge, and then combine them with the other ingredients and saute them just before you're ready to serve.
Step 1: Ingredients
- green beans (figure 1/4 pound per person)
- almond slivers
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- salt and pepper
Step 2: Prep the Beans
Place the prepped beans into a bowl or colander and rinse under cool running water.
Step 5: Run Under Cold Water
If you are cooking the beans ahead of time, you can take them and put them into the fridge at this point.
