Easy Buttered Green Beans and Carrot Sticks

6-8 servings
This is easy to make and the perfect veggie side dish to compliment your holiday table, and the combination of colours is very pretty! This recipe will serve around 6-8 people but it can be doubled. The beans and carrot sticks can be boiled hours in advance, just leave them in the ice water in the fridge until ready to saute in butter. I most always sprinkle with sliced toasted almonds, or even peanuts when serving this at my table, but that is optional.
