Green Beans with Toasted Almonds

green beans with almonds

With so many casseroles already planned for this years’ Thanksgiving dinner, we decided to stray from the traditional green bean casserole with canned soup and crunchy onions. These green beans with toasted almonds were the perfect addition. It was nice to have a lighter, healthier side there next to all my Thanksgiving favorites.


  • green beans (we used 2-3 lbs of green beans for Thanksgiving)
  • sliced almonds
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • salt & pepper


  1. Toast sliced almonds on baking sheet
  2. Steam green beans until bright green and tender (about 5-10 minutes)
  3. Toss cooked green beans with olive oil and butter to lightly coat
  4. Season with salt and pepper
  5. Add in toasted almonds and mix
