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
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.
