"Five minute preparation at home, then into a plastic baggie for transport, and heat over an open fire!!! Yum!!! Please don't try to use frozen green beans - it just doesn't work. You can turn this dish into a complete meal by adding sliced sauteed chicken."

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in olive oil, then mix in onion, garlic, and almonds. Saute until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in green beans and season with salt and pepper. Cover skillet with lid and cook for 3 minutes, stirring a few times so mixture doesn't burn. Transfer mixture to a shallow dish and place in refrigerator to cool. When cool, pack into a resealable bag.
  3. At campsite, heat a skillet over the fire or camp stove, dump in contents of bag, and cook just until heated through.

This was an easy recipe. We cooked this ahead of time and then reheated on our camp stove as suggested. It was a little bland. I think it could use some spices or something. I even doubled u...

These were excellent! Made them earlier in day, and just microwaved them for about a minute before serving, sprinkled with herb seasonings, too. Top notch flavour, easy, and can be prepared well...

These were very easy to make. I used frozen reg. grn beans and had precooked them in the microwave first for about 5 mins. and then used the skillet and they were awesome. Came out very tender ...
