We’re always here to help and when it comes to standout side dishes, and this Thanksgiving, green beans with caramelized onions and almonds is one that everyone will love.
What You Need:
- Kosher salt
- 3 pounds trimmed green beans
- 1/2 cup skin on sliced almonds
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 large onions, sliced thin
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
- Freshly ground black pepper
First, fill a large high sided skillet with some water. Place over high heat and bring up to boil. Then, add a big pinch of salt and the green beans, cooking for about 5 minutes. Next, drain the beans and run them under cold water. Next, return the skillet, in which you cooked the beans, to the stovetop over medium heat. Add the almonds and toast, stirring every now and then until golden, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the almonds from the skillet and reserve. Return the skillet to the heat and add the butter and olive oil and heat until the butter has melted. Add the onions, season with salt and pepper, and cook stirring until the onions caramelize, which should take about 20 to 25 minutes. Add the thyme, and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the cooked, cooled green beans and almonds, and stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Enjoy!
