This recipe was perfect. I roasted and salted the almonds myself and used real butter. The taste wss amazing!!! I have another vegetable favorite.

My new favorite way to feed my family green beans! My husband isn't fond of the almonds, but my 6 and 7 year old eat these and ask for more.

I agree with the comment on fresh vs. frozen beans - quite a bit better, but not always available. A very yummy variation: Fry a couple of slices of bacon and crumble*. Discard most of the bacon grease, and lightly "toast" the almonds in the remainder. Add the crumbled bacon and almonds to the beans. OK, more fat than as presented here, but still very, very yummy. (Oh, and I haven't used any lemon juice previously, but may try next time.) * Or use precooked bacon. You'll then have to use a little butter or margarine to "toast" the almonds.

good stuff except for the parkay ,I used earth balance because i am lactose intolerant. Fresh green beans are better, but frozen will do in a pinch

great way to include fiber form the nut and all greens together and so tasty. I don't like the green beans by it self but the nuts add a good favor
