Here is the back story – a true record of a conversation I had with myself :)
Fresh, tender beans stacked beautifully, so much so allz you need do is clip the pointed ends and steam them for about 3-4 minutes in your microwave – I say keep talking – in a flat large pan, saute in 1/2 tsp of olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, cut like thin & flat along with 1/2 tsp of crushed red peppers- Getting more interesting, keep going, I encouraged myself – Well,  add the steamed beans to this and sprinkle salt and turn in the pan, keeping them whole & in shape. Okay and …. Well now you take about 20 pieces of almonds, cut flat with their skins on and sprinkle and serve HOT …My alter ego says, Okay lemme taste this first (a chewing pause before) OMG, that is SOOOO delicious – Can I try some more, I say reaching out to grab a few when splat came my other hand clamping over the stealing one saying in a semi-stern tone – Ah ah ah… wait till its on the dining table along with the rest of the food, or you’ll get nothing then…

There you have it. Now for the pictures and remember if you see these beans in the store, snap them up -this can be made in 10 minutes flat :)
