Burnt butter & sage green beans

Low Fructose / Gluten Free

This dish is so simple to make and tastes great. The perfect side to any meal.

700gms green beans (tails chopped off)
1/2 cup almond slices, roughly crushed
12 fresh sage leaves
2 tbspn butter
1 garlic clove, cut in half (this is removed before serving)
Pinch of sea salt & pepper to taste

Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add the beans
After 2 minutes, remove and pour into a strainer over the sink, rinse with cold water and set aside
In a fry pan over medium to high heat, melt the butter. Add sage leaves, crushed almonds and garlic.
Stir regularly until butter starts to froth, the alomds start to brown and the sage leaves crisp a little.
This should take 1-2 minutes
Remove from heat, add the salt, pepper and beans and mix all ingredients thoroughly.  
Serve immediately (don't forget to remove the garlic pieces if you are fructose intolerant)
