Green Beans with Almonds

We don't eat frozen vegetables very often, but when we do, I like to liven them up.  This simple recipe is a great one for frozen green beans.  (We don't eat frozen vegetables often because I find the flavor of fresh organic vegetables so superior to frozen ones, and I never use any canned vegetables of any kind.)
2 to 3 cups of frozen green beans (or fresh)
1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup almond slivers
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
1 Tbl olive oil
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Steam green beans for 12 minutes.  Meanwhile dice onion and mince garlic.  Heat a heavy skillet (don't use one with a non-stick coating), and add olive oil.  When hot, sauté the onion, garlic and almond slivers together for a minute or two.  Add the green beans and toss another minute.  Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
