  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans
  • 1/2 medium onion (sliced thinly)
  • 1/4 cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  1. Place the green beans in a vegetable steamer.
  2. When the water boils, let the beans cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat.
  4. While the beans cook, melt the butter over medium heat in a small skillet.
  5. Add the onion slices and sauté them until they start to caramelize (about 5-6 minutes).

  6. Add the almonds and cook a few minutes more, tossing the onions and almonds occasionally. When the almonds start to brown, they are done.

  7. To serve, place the green beans in a warm serving dish and top with the onions and almonds.
