Step into spring by serving this quintessential green bean side dish. Goes with everything!

Size: serves 6

Ingredients:
1/2 cup blanched and slivered almonds
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
Flaky sea salt
Pepper
1 1/2 lbs green beans, trimmed

Directions:

Lightly toast almonds in a skillet over medium eat. Let cool, then transfer to a food processor and grind to the consistency of breadcrumbs.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, almonds, breadcrumbs, and lemon zest and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and golden. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
