  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 large zest of lemon
  • 1/2 cup feta


  • Steam green beans in a lidded pan in 1/2 cup water on high heat for 2-3 minutes until bright green.  Drain and run under cold water for 30 seconds.
  • Zest 1 lemon and chop up the zest.  Set aside.  Squeeze the lemon and save juice.
  • Saute 1/3 cup of slivered almonds in 2 Tablespoons of butter on medium to low heat to avoid burning.  About 10 minutes.  
  • Add the 2 Tablespoons of water and lemon juice to the pan to make the sauce.  Mix the sauce with a wooden spoon for 30 seconds and turn off heat.
  • Add the green beans to the pan and season with the salt and pepper.  Coat the green beans in the lemon and almond butter sauce. 
  • Plate the green beans and top with the crumbled feta and the chopped lemon zest.  Serve with lemon wedges and more feta.  Enjoy!


The lemon zest adds a great kick.  
The pepper is optional.
The feta is salty so not much extra salt is needed, but adjust according to taste.
