I love that we have the Farmer’s Market! It’s so great to have fresh garden produce for those of us who don’t have the space or the physical ability to have a garden. We do manage to have two tomato plants and several kinds of herbs that supply us with all of tomatoes we can eat and some to share. I love the green beans, beets zucchini and other veggies that the market provides for us, now we are waiting for the sweet corn. Today I am sharing a green bean recipe, I hope that you will enjoy!
Green Beans Amandine:
1 1/2 pounds green beans, ends snapped
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 small garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons dry sherry or sherry vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Bring a large saucepan of generously salted water to a rolling boil, add the green beans and cook until al dente’, 6-8 minutes. Drain thoroughly and set aside.
Return the saucepan to medium heat, melt the butter then add the garlic and saute’ until softened , about 30 seconds. Whisk in the brown sugar, sherry and cider vinegar. Add the green beans and toss until well coated.
Add the almonds, 1/2 tsp. salt, and the pepper and toss until well combined. Remove from heat and serve hot.
