I HATE green beans. I remember when I was little, I used to pass my green beans to my little sister underneath the table so she would eat them for me. As I’ve gotten older, I know that they’re good for me, so I choke them down (especially if my kids are watching).
My girls are not like me, though. They actually aren’t picky when it comes to food, and they really like veggies! My oldest daughter, Allie, who is 8, loves green beans. They are one of her favorite foods, and I even eat them this way. Here’s how I make them!
What you need:
- One cup water
- About one pound of fresh green beans
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
First, we need to toast the almonds. This MAKES the green beans. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place almonds onto a baking sheet. Bake for about 5-7 minutes or until they are slightly brown. Toasting is necessary.
Next, I like to cut up the green beans into bit size pieces.
Heat up the water and sugar into a pan and bring up to a boil.
Add the green beans in, and then lower the heat to simmer and cover them.
After about 10-15 minutes they will be ready. Transfer them to a serving bowl and then top with sea salt and almonds.
Super easy! Everyone likes these, so if you like green beans, I’m sure you will too! 🙂
