This easy one-pot side was inspired by classic green bean almondine. First, the beans simmer in a small amount of water until tender-crisp. Then, the liquid is cooked off, leaving them lightly glazed with butter. We especially like the texture of slivered almonds in this dish, but just about any type of nut pairs well with the beans. Red pepper adds a touch of piquancy and lemon zest and juice brightens up the flavors.

Tip

Don’t remove all of the almonds from the pot after toasting. Leave about half of them to cook with the beans; they soften slightly with cooking and add richness and textural interest to the dish.

Great and easy recipe. I didn't want the extra calories so left the nuts out and it was still delicious. Sometimes going back to the basics is worth it!
