So what is this dish all about?

Green beans almondine is a classic French dish of green beans with almonds. Almondine (or amandine) is a culinary term for an almond garnish. It involves green beans tossed with toasted sliced almonds (which are usually sautéed in butter) and a variety of other ingredients. Source

Although the recipe is typically low in carbohydrates anyway, I've tried to keep it as low as possible by not adding shallots or onions, and leaving the lemon juice out or keeping it to just a splash.

This dish is very easy to make – but is actually quite fancy – and could be enjoyed at feasts such as Thanksgiving or with any roasted meat or fish.  

How to Make Keto Green Beans Almondine

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add some trimmed fresh green beans. Cook for 3-4 minutes until they are just cooked but not soft.

Meanwhile, melt some butter in a large skillet and add some garlic paste and sliced almonds. Cook for a few minutes, stirring regularly.

Drain the green beans and immediately rinse them in cold water. This will stop them cooking further and will help maintain their bright color. 

Add the drained beans to the skillet, and mix them into the butter mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
