  1. Nonstick vegetable oil spray (PAM)
  2. 2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  3. 1 onion, peeled, chopped
  4. 2 Tbs marjoram
  5. Coarse kosher salt
  6. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 teaspoon (packed) finely grated lemon peel
  8. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped roasted almonds

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray 2 large rimmed baking sheets with nonstick spray (PAM). Combine green beans, onions, and marjoram in large bowl. Sprinkle with coarse kosher salt and pepper. Toss.

Roast vegetables 20 minutes. To properly roast almonds, set the oven to 350 F and cook them on a pan without any oil for 12 minutes.

Transfer vegetables to bowl. Add lemon juice, grated lemon peel, and half of chopped almonds. Toss to coat; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with remaining almonds.

Review: Fabulous! This cooking technique infuses the green beans with a caramelized smokey flavor. Just a great healthy way to put green beans in your diet and love it.
