I made a double batch of the Lovely Lemon-Garlic Green Beans from Cookin’ Up a Storm to go with some leftover pasta (nothing fancy, just a tomato-red pepper-red lentil sauce; simple but good). The name? Pretty spot on. These green beans are super-tasty and fairly easy to make, with tons of garlic; lemon juice and zest; and toasted almonds and sesame seeds. You’re supposed to use almond halves, but whole ones worked just fine for me.

To minimize your dishes, toast the almonds and sesame seeds in the same pan you’re planning to use for the garlic. Then transfer them to a microwave-safe bowl for temporary storage, and reuse it later to cook the green beans. Bam! Done and done.
