Introduction

About this Recipe

By: Kelli South

I stumbled upon this recipe by chance one afternoon.  I was looking in my fridge for something to eat, I moved the milk over and BAM! A pound of green beans just about hit me in the face.  I was planning on making them for a meal a few nights ago, and obviously things changed.  If you have ever left green beans in the fridge for too long they tend to get really soft, so I knew I had to eat them.  I continued to look in my fridge for some masterful combination to come at me like those green beans.

Ingredients

5 oz fresh green beans, trim off ends

1/2 oz roasted almonds, cut in half

1/2 oz feta cheese, crumbled

1 tsp olive oil

salt & pepper, to taste

2 tsp balsamic glaze (if you do not have balsamic glaze,  add 1/4 C balsamic vinegar to a sauce pan on low heat, keep at a simmer and reduce until it has the consistency of syrup, about 10min, keep stirring)

I continued to look in my fridge for some masterful combination to come at me like those green beans. Then it came to me! FETA! I love cheese and just a sprinkle of cheese can transform a dish for me. I had also remembered that I just made balsamic for a dish last week. Lastly, everything needs a little crunch!  I am a sucker for this dish, especially on a day I want a healthy lunch, or as a side to a delicious meal.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

In a medium sauté pan, heat oil over a medium-low flame.  When oil is hot, add green beans.  Sauté until tender, 5-6 minutes, and take off heat.

Step 2

Toss in feta, almond, salt and pepper.  Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
