Green beans and almonds make a unique combination of crunchy and crispy textures. Green beans are full of chlorophyll and fiber, and almonds have protein. This makes an excellent side dish alongside the squash kugal. Watch this video below to se how it's made!
green beans, ends trimmed and strings removed
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste (optional)
fresh parsley, chopped
- Add water to bottom of sauce pan and turn to medium heat. Place green beans in the steamer culinary basket and insert in sauce pan. Steam green beans for 3 - 5 minutes or until tender. Place under cool running water to halt the cooking and maintain a bright green color. Transfer the steamed greens to a large mixing bowl.
- Season green beans to taste with salt and pepper, toss gently, and set aside.
- Sprinkle the toasted almonds and parsley over the green beans and toss well to thoroughly coat the beans with the mixture.
