Cranberry Green Beans with almonds

Cranberry Green Beans with almonds combine two beloved Thanksgiving ingredients into one simple side dish. To ensure the green beans are fresh, hot, and fine, use the time the turkey is resting to sauté them. They can be trimmed and par-cooked the day before.

Blanch green beans in a pot of boiling water with baking soda until just tender, 57 minutes; transfer to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking, then drain.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high; add cranberries and sauté until softened, 12 minutes. Add garlic; sauté until golden, 1–2 minutes. Stir in green beans; sauté until heated through, 3–5 minutes, stirring often. Season green beans with salt and pepper.

Transfer green beans to a platter and top with almonds.
