Chef Jacquie Recipe


  • 1 pound green beans, trim tips and cut into 1 inch bite sized pieces
  • Water, for boiling
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 stick salted butter
  • 1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

Blanche green beans:

Place ice cubes and water into a large bowl and set aside.  In a large saucepot, over high heat, bring water to a boil.  Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and green beans, bring back to a boil and cook for about 4-5 minutes.

Drain and immediately plunge beans into ice water bath.  When cooled, place beans aside or in a closed container and keep in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Making Green Beans Almandine:

In a large pan, over medium heat, add butter, salt and almonds.  Cook almonds for about 2 minutes or until golden brown, stirring, so they don’t burn.

Add green beans and lemon juice, stirring to coat green beans with butter sauce and to warm the beans through.
