Garlic-Almond Green Beans is her family’s favorite way to eat this popular vegetable, writes Genny Monchamp from Redding, California. “The beans stay so bright and crisp. To speed things up even more, you could use frozen green beans instead of fresh.”

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
