Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Although green beans have often been paired with either bacon or almonds, I've never seen a recipe for them both until I found one in a cookbook called The New Irish Table. They enhance one another quite nicely in this recipe, and it's very easy and quick to make. Imitation bacon has the smokey flavor of regular bacon, but fewer calories. I've included instructions (such as they are) for both. Butter beans and lima beans are from the same family. If you can't find frozen butter beans (favas), canned are fine but don't cook as long. They don't suggest browning the almonds, but you could do so in a 350F oven for 5 minutes or until visibly browned.
