Green Bean Almondine – Side Dish Favorite

 

Keeping my recipe book stocked with simple keto friendly side dishes. Green Bean Almondine is one of those perfect side dishes!

 

Green bean almondine is a simple, traditional, keto-friendly side dish that pairs well with a wide variety of meals.

I have a lot of meat and potato loving family members; a common version of comfort food.

The trouble is, I can’t have the potatoes while on keto.

To please everyone’s tastes, this recipe for green bean almondine is a quick and easy side dish complimenting any traditional comfort food meal. Beef, chicken, pork, seafood, even some pasta dishes (or keto vegetable pasta if you’re following a keto diet like me) are a wonderful partner for this simple side dish.

For this recipe I suggest cooking your green beans first, then drizzling the butter sauce over the beans before serving, however if you have a big enough skillet there’s no reason you can’t add the beans to the skillet and toss them in the sauce. If you really wanted to, you could even cook the beans and all in the butter sauce, just be careful so you don’t cook the garlic too long. Garlic cooked too long will become bitter and lose it’s sweet quality.

Another quick note is that while I usually make this recipe from frozen green beans, it’s honestly at it’s shining moment when you use fresh. They have a better crunch to them, even when they’re cooked. It just takes a little longer to prep them with all of the washing and trimming ends.
