Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

A lovely twist to glamorise green beans for any special occasion.


  • ± 500 g green beans
  • 1 T (15 ml) olive oil
  • Ina Paarman’s Vegetable Spice
  • 3 T (45 ml) butter
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) slivered almonds
  • ½ cup (125 ml) dried cranberries

Toss the beans with a little olive oil to preserve colour.

Steam the beans.

Season with Vegetable Spice.

While the beans are being cooked prepare the almonds and cranberries.

In a separate small frying pan heat the butter, add the almonds and cranberries.

Stir-fry until the almonds are nicely toasted. This can be done in advance.

Dish up the steamed beans in a warmed serving dish. Spoon over the almonds and cranberries.


Ina's Tip

This vegetable side can be pre-prepared and re-heated in the microwave just before serving.
