These green beans are a delicious way to change up from plain green beans! They make for the perfect addition to any meal!



  • 1 pound fresh green beans (3 to 4 cups), washed and trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced sweet onion
  • 2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. When tender, plunge beans into an ice bath to stop the cooking, drain and refrigerate up to 2 days.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until they begin to turn golden, about 2 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and continue cooking for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  3. Add the green beans, almonds and paprika to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until heated through.
