- 4 slices Bacon
- 1 tbsp Butter (or ghee)
- 2 cloves Garlic (minced)
- 1/3 cup Almonds (sliced)
- 2 tsp Lemon juice
- 1 lb Green beans (trimmed)
- Sea salt
- Black pepper
Boil salt water in a large saucepan or pot. Add green beans. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until bright green and crisp tender. Drain, then immediately plunge the green beans into ice water to stop cooking. Leave the green beans in the water for a couple of minutes, then drain. Set aside.
Meanwhile, use kitchen shears or a knife to cut the bacon slices into 1/2 in (1 cm) square pieces.
Add the bacon to a large saute pan at room temperature. Place on the stove and fry over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and releases its fat. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon pieces, leaving the bacon fat in the pan. Set aside the bacon.
Reduce heat to low. Add the butter to the pan with the bacon fat. Heat until melted.
Add the sliced almonds. Saute for a few minutes, until the almonds are golden.
Add the garlic. Saute for about another minute, until fragrant. Stir in the lemon juice.
Add the green beans and bacon pieces to the saute pan. Toss everything to coat. Season with sea salt and black pepper. Cook for a few minutes, until hot.
Serving size: 1/2 cup
