Low Carb Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds

Coming up with main courses for a low carb diet is not too difficult; just stay away from the high carb ingredients with what ever meat you are cooking. Side dishes are a little different, you are basically limited to green vegetables because green veggies are naturally low carb (sweet peas are high in sugar and do not count). Now because I do not eat broccoli, I eat a lot of green beans and salads and that can get old quick. I have about 15 different low carb recipes for green beans and I thought I would share one today!

Low Carb Green Beans with Bacon and Almonds
4 slices bacon, chopped into small pieces
½ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 ½ cups green beans, drained
¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
¼ tsp. kosher salt
¼ tsp. thyme leaves
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
½ cup slivered toasted almonds

In a medium skillet cook bacon piece until crisp. Using slotted spoon, remove bacon from skillet, reserving drippings. Drain bacon on paper towel. Cook onion and bell pepper in hot bacon drippings until tender. Add green beans, salt, thyme and black pepper. Cook over low heat about 10 minutes or until heated thoroughly. Stir in almonds and bacon than serve.
