This naturally low carb recipe for french cut green beans with toasted sliced almonds is a family favorite dating back to my childhood.
In fact, before I filmed this recipe I chatted with my mom and asked her for tips!
Some of my earliest holiday memories revolve around this dish at the dinner table!
This is a great way to dress up green beans for Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other celebration throughout the year.
Are Green Beans Keto?
Some will tell you that green beans aren't acceptable on a keto diet because they are a higher-carb count vegetable.
One cup of green bean pieces has a total of 7 grams of carbohydrate. 3.4 of those grams are fiber. Which leaves 3.6 grams of carbohydrate in a cup of green beans.
I strongly believe that vegetables have a place in our diets and that we shouldn't let carb counts scare us away. Vegetables are nutrient dense and provide needed fiber in our diet.
Should you eat 5 cups of green beans?? No… but who does that??
Instead, stick to a half to one cup of green beans on your plate and include a second vegetable in there as well.
