Recipe: Green Beans with Crushed Almonds

  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup blanched whole almonds, finely ground

Cook beans in a 3-qt. saucepan of boiling salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes, and drain. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over moderate heat, then cook garlic, stirring, until it just begins to turn golden, about 1 minute. Add almonds and cook, stirring, until they begin to color slightly, about 2 minutes. Add beans and cook, stirring, until tender and heated through, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
