- 1 1/2 pound green beans, ends trimmed
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons corn starch
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Sea salt
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
How to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 400°. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the beans until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain in a colander.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Sauté the onion over medium-high heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook one minute more.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk the milk and cornstarch until smooth. Add to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Season with the nutmeg, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add the beans and toss to coast.
Transfer the mixture to a 3-quart ceramic baking dish and sprinkle the almonds over the top. Bake for 15 minutes, until heated through and the almonds are lightly golden brown.
