Brown butter dresses up green beans for a simple and delicious side dish. Green beans coated with nutty and rich brown butter and sliced almonds to add more delicious texture!
Taking an extra few minutes to brown the butter makes all the difference in green beans. Butter is delicious as is, but browning the butter enhances the richness of the butter. The sliced almonds complement this dish for added nuttiness and texture!
These beans take less than 30 minutes for me to make, so they make a perfect way to dress up a weeknight dinner or anytime you are looking for a delicious and fast side dish!
Brown Butter Green Beans with Almonds
- 2 lbs fresh green beans cleaned and trimmed
- 3 T butter
- 3 T sliced almonds
- Fill a large pot with water. Bring the water to a boil and add the green beans. Cook until tender but still bright green. Drain the water from the beans and set aside.
- In a small pot, add the butter and heat over medium heat. Allow the butter to cook and get foamy on top. Continue to stir with a whisk until the butter becomes a dark golden color. Reduce the heat to low and add the almonds and stir.
- Pour the brown butter and almonds over the green beans and toss to coat the green beans. Add salt to taste.
- Serve & enjoy!
