Broiled Green Beans Almondine

A buttery and nutty Broiled Green Beans Almondine Recipe that’s on the healthier side and only takes 15 minutes to make from start to finish!


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans or French green beans (preferably if you can find some)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Wash your beans and dry them with a paper towel.
  2. Trim the ends by placing the green beans on a cutting surface and using a sharp knife.
  3. Lay a piece of parchment paper on a large cooking tray and place the green beans on top, lying flat (not piled up). Toss them with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with a little salt.
  4. Broil in the oven for 4-8 minutes (keep an eye on them as they can burn very quickly!), until the beans are lightly charred and wrinkled, soft but still a little crunchy. Transfer the beans to a paper towel and set aside.
  5. In a pan over medium high heat, add almonds and sauté until the almonds turn a light golden brown color. Add butter and lemon and stir.
  6. Add the green beans and saute for 1 minute.
  7. Turn off the heat, transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper.
