Beans and Blueberries

This simple side dish was introduced to me by my husband. When he first suggested the combination of green beans and blueberries, I was skeptical. However, it quickly became a favorite in our household.
  • 4 c. green beans -- cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 c. fresh blueberries
  • 2 T. sliced almonds

Bring the green beans to a boil in a saucepan filled with water and 1 teaspoon salt. Steam until crisp-tender -- about 5 minutes. Drain.

Add the butter, pepper and blueberries to the drained beans. Mix gently to combine. Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the top just before serving.

  • Yields: 4-6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
