What would be a great green coloured side dish (no salads) for a Canadian turkey Thanksgiving dinner? I am looking for something to go on the main entrée plate.

Hi jmweb,

Here is a green side-dish that I make regularly. It's simple to make, reliable, looks good on the plate, is low-carb, and tastes great!

The recipe is originally from Student Cookbook by Sophie Grigson.


450g fine beans, topped and tailed
30g butter
1 onion, peeled, halved, and sliced
120ml double cream or heavy cream
salt and pepper
dash of lemon juice
15g toasted flaked almonds

Boil the beans for 4 minutes until barely tender. Drain thoroughly.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. When the butter is foaming, add the onion and fry gently until tender without browning.

Add the beans, stir about for a minute or so, then add salt and pepper. Add the cream, bring it to the boil, then let it bubble for a minute or two until the cream has reduced to a sauce that coats the beans nicely.

Stir in a squeeze of lemon juice to heighten the flavours. Stir in the flaked almonds and serve.
