Green Beans Almondine

-Suzie Irwin

1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup sliced almonds
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper

Trim and rinse beans. Place beans in a pot, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 8 – 10 minutes until tender crisp. Drain beans and set aside. Melt butter in a saucepan with olive oil. Add garlic and almonds and sauté on medium heat until almonds begin to brown. Add beans, lemon juice, salt and pepper and toss gently to coat.
