  • 1 lb fresh green beans 454 grams
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil extra virgin
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Place the almonds on a tin foil covered baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Bake for 4-5 minutes, watching carefully so you don't burn them. Remove to a different dish and set aside.
  • Place the beans in a single layer on the same baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • While the beans are still on the baking sheet add the lemon juice, almonds, and the cheese. Mix together and then move to a serving dish. Garnish with more cheese if you like.


I use fresh green beans, not canned or frozen. make sure to wash fresh green beans and trim the ends off.
I grate the Parmesan cheese myself, for freshness and flavor. Use the Parmsesan cheese that you prefer.
