Super Bowl - Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

I had seen recipes that combined green beans and cranberries and wanted to try them. I found this recipe on line and it looked pretty healthy.

Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

a big handful of green beans (about 200g)
⅓ cup dried cranberries
boiling water
⅓ slivered, unblanched almonds
1 Tbsp Grapeseed oil (or other veg oil)
salt
Fresh black pepper

- put the cranberries in a small bowl and just cover with hot water. Allow to sit for 5 to 10 mins.
- clean and trim beans
- heat oil over a medium heat and add beans, stir-frying for about 3 mins until bright green
- add cranberries, with water, and stir until water has mostly evaporated
-add almonds and cook for minute more
- season with salt and pepper.

This turned out to be a great recipe for a busy day of cooking as it was very easy to do (almost heat and serve).
