"These green beans are easy and delicious. They are a bit tangy, spicy, and crunchy with the almonds. My family's favorite!" — Annette

fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
I loved this dish! What a delicious and elegant recipe for company. I always use fresh green beans.... there's really no comparison to others. Adjust the lemon pepper seasoning to your own taste starting with 1 tsp.
Two stars as written, if for no other reason than that this recipe calls for an extraordinarily large amount of lemon pepper seasoning and I knew better not to use that much. Curious, I measured it out in a prep bowl to see just how much that amount of seasoning looked like and was amazed--if I didn't know better I would think there was a misprint in the recipe. On the other hand, there is nothing extraordinary at all about green beans with butter and almonds, which would have made this only average at best, even using a more realistic measure of the lemon pepper seasoning.
These were delicious!
I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was excellent! As one reviewer may have said, there is nothing special about lemon pepper and almonds in green beans, but its simplicity makes it easy and delicious. It was great to find something new and interesting to try with the extra summer green beans! Thanks for the recipe!
Sounds too simple. But I got raves at all my Holiday dinners for them. The kids even had seconds (which was really weird). Works with frozen petite beans as well as blanched fresh ones.
Very easy, quick, and tasty addition to veggies. My 17-year old said "awesome". I used a little less lemon pepper then called for and added regular pepper and salt. Would be good with a number of veggies. Next time I'm trying broccoli.
If you're a fan of lemon pepper (which I happen to be), these are for you! Very tasty, thanks Annette!
I also used frozen green beans that I microwaved beforehand. Very easy, great-tasting recipe.
