Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds
A lovely twist to glamorise green beans for any special occasion.
YOU WILL NEED
- ± 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.
This vegetable side can be pre-prepared and re-heated in the microwave just before serving.
