Recipe Ingredients for Green Beans with Almonds and Caramelized Shallots

1 oz Raw Almonds
24 oz Frozen Cut Green Beans
7 tbsp chopped Shallots
1 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cup, chopped Peppers, Sweet, Green
1/4 tsp Sea Salt

Recipe Directions for Green Beans with Almonds and Caramelized Shallots

  1. Place the slivered almonds in a dry skillet over low heat, and cook and stir constantly until the almonds are lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Watch carefully, because they burn easily. Remove the almonds and set aside.

  2. Heat butter in a skillet over medium-low heat, and cook and stir the shallots and red bell pepper until softened, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle the shallot mixture with sugar, salt, and pepper, and reduce heat to low. Cover, and cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves and the shallots caramelize, 5 to 8 minutes.

  3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan, fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer, and bring the water to a boil. Add the green beans, cover, and steam until just tender enough to pierce with a fork, 7 to 8 minutes. Drain the green beans, place them into the skillet with the shallot mixture, mix well, and gently stir in the toasted almonds.
