crumbled blue cheese
These beans were loved by all who ate them! Just follow the recipe, and you won't be sorry! Very good, once again, Chef!
too much blue cheese
I didn't have time to roast the garlic, so I just minced it and sautéed it with the almonds. Delicious! The combination of blue cheese, garlic and almonds is wonderful.
If I could give this an extra, bonus star, I would! I used green beans from my garden & "guessed" I had about a half pound, so I chose to use 1 head of garlic, 1/2 as much blue cheese, but still used 1/3c almonds. Rave reviews from the fam! Tasted so "gourmet"!
I used 1 tbs butter and 1 tbs oil. I found the blue cheese to be the perfect amount.
I changed the recipe as I did not have almonds or blue cheese. I just substituted roughly chopped walnuts and goat cheese. Turned out delicious! I think even without the cheese or nuts this dish would be tasty on it's own because of the roasted garlic - well worth the time. I roasted the garlic while marinating my chicken, and prepping couscous as a starch. This way the oven was hot and ready to go for my chicken to bake!
