GREEN BEANS · OLIVE OIL · ALMONDS
Sauté — Medium-high
Decisions, decisions. Green beans are so easy and basic, you’ll have to figure out how you like them best. If you don’t get the pre-trimmed kind, snip off stem ends. Or not. Now all you need is a hot skillet and some fat. Olive oil. Butter. Ghee. Bacon fat. Pick one. Sauté until beans are just soft and brown. Or cook them less, for more crunch. Top with slivered almonds toasted in butter, or just butter. Not as French; just as delicious.
(When in doubt, add butter and/or salt.)
