Haricots Verts with Toasted Almonds


  • 1 pound/450 g haricot vert (thin green beans)
  • 1/2 cup/50 g sliced raw almonds
  • 3 tablespoons/40 g butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350?F/180?C. Place almonds on heavy baking sheet and bake until golden brown, watching carefully so that they do not burn, about 8 minutes. Set the nuts aside.
  2. Trim the green beans evenly so they are the same size. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil over high heat. Cook the green beans in the boiling water for 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender.
  3. Drain beans and transfer them to a bowl. Toss the beans with the butter to coat. Season the beans to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle with toasted almonds, and serve.
