Green Beans Almondine is a classic French recipe made from boiled and blanched fresh green beans that are served with toasted almonds and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook green beans for 4-5 minutes, or until cooked to your desired tenderness.
Once done cooking, immediately blanch green beans in an ice water bath. Drain once beans have cooled to room temperature.
