Here’s an alternative to the classic green bean casserole. This recipe requires only stovetop cooking and can be partially made the day before. P.S. this dish is gluten free.


  • 2 Pounds Fresh Green Beans (Trimmed)
  • 1/2 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Parsley (Chopped)
  1. Place the slivered almonds in a medium-size skillet and toast over a medium heat for 2 minutes. Stir frequently. You will want them to be lightly browned. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  2. Place green beans in large-size saucepan. Cover with cold water. Turn heat to a medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Drain beans. Place beans in ice water bath for 5 minutes. This will stop any further cooking.
  3. Drain beans and pat dry. Place beans in zip-lock bag and place in refrigerator for 2 hours. You will want beans to be thoroughly chilled.
  4. In a large-size skillet place butter and olive oil. Turn heat to medium and melt butter. Stir in green beans. Cook for 5 minutes. You will want beans to be a light golden brown. Stir in cooled almonds and parsley. Heat through.
  5. Transfer to serving bowl and serve warm.
