Garlicky Green Beans...
*This serves approximately four, just up the quantity for a bigger crowd*
Large handful of fresh French green beans, cut into thirds
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic, sliced thin (a mandolin works well, just watch your fingers)
1/2 to 1 tsp dill
Handful of sliced almonds (you decide how much, I like 'em loaded with almonds)
Salt to taste
Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Add the green beans and cook for 1-2 minutes, until color just begins to brighten. Strain from boiling water and set aside.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add the sliced garlic to the skillet and spread it out so that it can brown. Watch the garlic, you can burn it and then you'll have to start over. You can turn the heat to medium-low if that makes you feel better. Just don't go off to paint your toenails or baste a turkey. When the garlic is just beginning to color, about a minute or two, add the drained green beans to the skillet and stir, coating them with garlic flavored butter.
Are you drooling? I am.
Happy Turkey Day!
