Green Beans with Shallots and Thyme

Green beans - ends trimmed
Shallots - sliced thinly
4 garlic pods - sliced thinly
Slivered Almonds
Olive Oil

Boil water is a big pan. Blanch the beans in the boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain water and run cold water on the beans immediately to stop the cooking process and retain the green color. In a cast iron pan, heat olive oil. Cook the garlic slices for a minute and add the sliced shallots. Cook till they are nicely caramelised. Add dried thyme and the beans. Sprinkle salt and pepper and cook on high heat tossing gently. Remove from heat, sprinkle slivered almonds and serve.
