"Five minute preparation at home, then into a plastic baggie for transport, and heat over an open fire!!! Yum!!! Please don't try to use frozen green beans - it just doesn't work. You can turn this dish into a complete meal by adding sliced sauteed chicken." — GIGI29715

sweet onion, diced
3 (14.5 ounce) cans
French-style green beans, drained
salt and pepper to taste
These were very nice for a change- and a good way to spruce up canned green beans. However I would recommened cooking the onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes before adding the almonds. Then cook the almonds for 1/2 minutes before adding the greenbeans!
I loved the flavors and added more garlic. I think fresh green beans would be better though. The canned green beans tend to get mushed.
My family loved these green beans. My niece said these were the best green beans she'd ever eaten. Refrigerating them overnight and heating them up the next day really heightened the flavor. I'll definitely make them again.
Glenda, these are wonderful. My family detests most canned veggies, so I used frozen (against your better judgement) This side dish was awesome with frozen beans.I will be making these alot this summer when I have fresh ones from my garden!I bet it will be super delicious! Thanks for sharing.
This is a great recipe. I substituted frozen French cut green beans instead of using canned. I made this dish for Thanksgiving, and it was a big hit! I will definitely make this again.
I'm always looking for recipes that are low in saturated fat. This one is great because is uses oil instead of butter, and tastes great.
These were excellent! Made them earlier in day, and just microwaved them for about a minute before serving, sprinkled with herb seasonings, too. Top notch flavour, easy, and can be prepared well in advance for quick serving at dinner. My kind of recipe!
These were very easy to make. I used frozen reg. grn beans and had precooked them in the microwave first for about 5 mins. and then used the skillet and they were awesome. Came out very tender and the flavor is wonderful with the garlic and lovethe texture with the almonds. Very Easy to warm at campsite.
