Any Thanksgiving meal is incomplete without one popular side dish. Yes, green beans is something everyone expects at a Thanksgiving dinner as a side dish. And if you are a vegetarian like me, this is one of the must haves.
Every year, I try to make a recipe that is different from last years. So, this year I am adding a twist. I am preparing these green beans with caramelized onions, almonds and cashews.
Cashew nuts and almonds make up for extra crunchiness since I love my food to be crunchy. Squeezed lemon juice gives it a tangy flavor. I made these for our dinner side dish this weekend, and it was gone before we even started our dinner.
My picky little eater asked for multiple servings. He loved the addition of cashews and the sour spicy flavor of this delicious Thanksgiving side dish. Best thing about this all time favorite and most popular side dish is that it gets along well with any kind of dinner menu.
So, doesn’t matter what other items you have in mind to prepare for your upcoming Thanksgiving dinner, these green beans are going to find a place on your dinner table!
