Recipe from Melissa Coleman's The Minimalist Kitchen.


1 pound French green beans {haricots verts}

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey {see notes}

2 tablespoons sliced toasted almonds

2 tablespoons grated parmesan

pink Himalayan salt, to taste

black pepper, to taste


Fill a large and deep sauté pan two-thirds full with water and bring to a boil. 

Salt the water liberally and add in the beans. Cook for 4 minutes and drain.

Return the beans to the pan and add in the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Over medium-high heat cook the beans for 3 minutes.

Plate and garnish with the almonds and parmesan. Season with more salt and pepper if desired. 

Recipe Notes

I have made these with and without honey, and both are fantastic. If you prefer, this ingredient can be eliminated.
