    • Boil a large pot of water, aggressively salted.
    • Add the green beans, blanching for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally (slightly undercooked).
    • Melt the butter in a large skillet on medium-low heat.
    • Add the sliced almonds and allow to saute for about 3 minutes.
    • Turn heat down and add the diced green onions and minced garlic. Saute for another minute.
    • Transfer the green beans straight into the skillet and saute a bit, tossing the beans with the almond mixture until the beans are tender.
    • Add lemon zest and lemon juice, toss, and add salt and pepper.


  • Appropriately salted water should taste like the ocean.
  • A quick cheat would be to microwave the French green beans rather than blanching them.

Tips for Making Ahead of Time

  • To make ahead of time, blanch the green beans and then put in an ice bath. Allow the beans to cool; drain them; and then lay them in a single layer on a towel to dry. Place the beans in a ziploc and refrigerate. They’ll last a couple of days this way. Before serving, make the almond mixture and add the green beans until they’re well heated.
  • If you plan to use a crockpot to keep the green beans warm, err toward undercooking the green beans. Leaving them in the slow cooker for too long could result in overcooked beans.
