String Beans Almondine
Probably my all time favorite vegetable are string beans. I can't get enough of them. I like them steamed, sauteed, roasted and almondine. There is nothing better than buttery and almondy string beans.
I made these the other day for a pot luck that I go to almost every Wednesday. Since I had to rush home and make these super quick so that I wouldn't be late I didn't get a chance to make them "properly". Generally the string beans are sliced down the middle or on a diagonal, whichever you prefer and are the boiled in salt water for a few minutes and shocked in cold water to help retain their color before being bathed in a pan with butter and almonds. Regardless of how you make them they are easy to do and very delicious to eat. I'm thinking of making them for Thanksgiving this year at my in laws.
Get ready! VEGANMOFO is upon us again. For the month of October it will be daily blogging for me during this special event. Last year I only missed 2 or 3 days because of Thansgiving. This year I might miss 2 because of a wedding at the end of the month in Ohio. Click on the link to learn all about it and see who is taking part in it.
