1 packet of green beans, tips removed(300g)
2 Tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
a pinch or two of nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
50 g raw silvered almonds, toasted
In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add a pinch of salt.
Add the green beans and blanche for about 2-4 minutes until soft.
Remove from the boiling water and add directly in a stainless steel bowl of water with ice-cubes.
This step will prevent the green beans to cook further as well as to loose its beautiful green colour.
Leave for about 2-3 minutes.
In the mean time, toast the almonds in a frying pan for 3-4 minutes on low heat to get a toasted colour, but be careful not to burn the almonds.
Remove the green beans from the ice water and pat dry on kitchen towel.
Heat the butter in the frying pan and fry the green beans and garlic lightly, adding some nutmeg for taste.
Add the almonds and fry for 2 minutes and place in serving dish.
