salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
fresh green beans, trimmed
cayenne pepper, or more to taste
crumbled 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.
too much 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!
Made this last night for a dinner party for 12 but I adjusted the serving size to 8 because I added some sauteed yellow onion and mushrooms. I blanched the green beans for ONLY 2 minutes as I love a crisp bite to my beans and you will be putting them in the oven at 400 again so they get cooked again there. They came out PERFECT ! A very nice SNAP left in the bean when it came out of the oven and it they even sat for 1/2hr before we ate and STILL had that CRUNCH! Added a bit more Blue cheese because I put a layer of the bean mixture in the dish then layered some of the cheese on then added all the rest of the bean mixture that way when you got to the middle of the beans there would still be blue cheese. Did everything else all the same. Got complements and there were none left in my dish!! Need I say more!!
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.
This is delicious! I'm not a fan of green beans but in this recipe I love them. The garlic, almonds and blue cheese go great together.
I rarely use fresh green beans because they always just seem to taste 'green' to me, but this recipe worked great. Everyone really liked them. I did take the advice of some others & sautéed some red onion with the almonds. I will use this again & again.
