Sous Vide Green Bean Almandine

I usually cook meat in my sous vide, but it is also a great way to cook vegetables. Fresh vegetables come out of a sous vide water bath with a wonderful crisp bite. They do not taste flat like boiled veggies can. They taste bright, full of flavor, and are actually one of the healthiest ways to cook vegetables since this method limits the amount of nutrients that leech out of the food.

The recipe here is for green bean almandine. This is a classic side dish, but preparing it using a modern form of cooking changes both the taste and texture of each bite. The green beans are fresh and crisp; the almonds have a wonderful crunch and the lemon provides a vibrant fresh taste. This dish shows just how great vegetables can be when cooked sous vide.
