“My husband loves green beans, and mushrooms, and toasted almonds, so I thought I'd try to combine all three! I've made this for a couple different family get-togethers, and it goes over very well! I don't know measured portions, as I just put as much as I want and season to taste!”
1 Side Dish

Ingredients Nutrition

  • frozen green beans (or you could use fresh)
  • fresh mushrooms
  • slivered almonds
  • garlic pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter, approx
  • other seasoning, to your liking (sometimes I add Tabasco for a kick)


  1. Melt 1/2 of the butter on stove, add slivered almonds and continuously stir to toast.
  2. They are done when their color has changed slightly.
  3. Remove the almonds.
  4. Melt the rest of the butter, and saute mushrooms with garlic pepper and other seasonings as you wish.
  5. Meanwhile, cook green beans (I use frozen, so I cook them in the microwave while I'm sauteing).
  6. Once the mushrooms are done, turn them down to low until the green beans are done.
  7. Mix together the green beans, mushrooms, and slivered almonds, reserving a tablespoon or so to sprinkle on the top before serving.
