Green Beans with Brown Butter and Toasted Almonds



A holiday meal is not complete without green beans. I love them, and no matter how they are prepared, they just seem to make the meal complete. On Thanksgiving I prepared these green beans with brown butter and toasted almonds. They are super easy to make and the simple nutty flavors turn green beans into a perfect holiday side dish.

Everyday Maven is a wonderful blog filled with healthy, clean recipes that are easy to prepare and family friendly. I feel fortunate to be included in this amazing group of bloggers and am so excited to share a recipe for this simple, gluten free dinner.

Soft Sugar Cookies {Gluten Free}

Soft sugar cookies sprinkled with festive holiday sprinkles {gluten free}

My first batch of holiday cookies!! Since I have become 100% gluten free, I have forayed into GF baking a bit. I have never been much of a baker to begin with. I created a muffin here and there and a birthday cupcake now and again, but keeping my kitchen stocked with home baked goods has never been my thing.

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Maldon Sea Salt

Brussels sprouts are flashed fried and topped with chunky sea salt

Not only are Brussels sprouts the “it” ingredient for fall and winter side dishes, but they are personally one of my favorite veggies. Remember in the old days when people use to boil Brussels sprouts to death? Then serve them up all mucky and smooshy?  That’s why no one liked them! Yuck.
