Pretty Almond Green Beans

Pretty Almond Green Beans | Mimi's Fit Foods

It’s always helpful to have additional ways to serve the same old veggies, right?  I love plain green beans, but these green beans were even better!  Not only do they look pretty in a serving dish, the flavors kind of reminded me of that traditional green bean casserole I see around the holidays . . . minus the gooky cream-of-whatever soup.  This dish is full of antioxidants and it is a great way to get those veggies in our bodies.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, saute the pepper, mushrooms and onion in oil until tender.  Drain beans; stir into vegetable mixture.  Sprinkle with almonds.
