  • 1 lb of fine green beans
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 Cup of pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 handful of sliced almonds
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of ground black pepper to taste


  • Cook the beans in boiling salted water just “al dente” (very undercooked because they will continue to cook afterward).
  • In a skillet, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat until the butter is melted and the foam is gone.
  • Add the almonds and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. About 1 minute. Using a slotted spoon, reserve the almonds
  • Reduce the heat and add the garlic to the skillet. Cook; then stir constantly for about 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  • Add the green beans, increase the heat and cook, stirring often.
  • Add lemon juice and salt and pepper, stir well, sprinkle with almonds, stir again and serve.
  • For the topping, you can sprinkle the pomegranate on top, the black and white sesame seeds and zest a little lemon.
  • Serve and enjoy your dish!
