Green Beans with Almonds and Balsamic Vinegar
Serving Size / Yield
- 4 oz. fresh green beans
- cooking spray
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 1/2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. sliced almonds
Bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil and add beans. Simmer until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Set aside.
Lightly coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add shallot and saute over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring, until shallot is limp but not brown. Add green beans to skillet and heat over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in vinegar and after about 30 seconds, sprinkle with almonds. Toss to coat evenly. Serve right away.
