Normally I am not a fan of sweet dishes, but this intrigued me. Green beans with caramelized shallots and toasted almonds? Check! And for some reason I could imagine a touch of sweetness working in this. I was right! I did like it, although I used much less sugar then the recipe called for, less then half. The recipe amount would make this candy-sweet. I used brown sugar instead of white, and I think that complimented the caramelization. Also I was out of red peppers, so I substituted some jarred roasted red peppers. That worked great. Thanks Jen for expanding my palate and urging me to experiment with new flavor combinations!
