Lemon Garlic Green Beans with Almonds by Tess Masters

Thanks to: The Blender Girl Tess Masters

“The delicious aroma when you sauté the garlic, almonds, and lemon juice makes you salivate, and I have been caught eating the mixture off the wooden spoon before it even reaches the green beans! You really could serve that as a side topping, or stir it through cooked quinoa or millet with some fresh chopped parsley for a quick, easy grain dish.”
