Roasted green beans with almond gremolata and fried shallots

This no fuss side dish comes together in no time. The gremolata and fried shallots can be prepared in advance, and the green beans are roasted at the last minute.

  • 1 pound Green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 3/4 cup parsley
  • 3 tbs parm grated
  • 1/3 cup olive oil + 1tbs
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • Oil for frying
  1. Coat your beans in 1 tbs oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast beans in 425 oven for about  10 minutes
  3. Finely chop your almonds, parsley, and garlic. It’s ok if the almonds stay a little chunky.
  4. Combine above ingredients with lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, and 1 tbs parm until a chunky paste/sauce forms. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Fry shallots in oil until crispy and brown, careful not to burn. Drain on towel.
  6. Assemble with green beans on bottom, drizzled sauce, more grated or shaved parm, and the shallots on top.
