Steamed Green Beans with Slivered Almonds

I love this simple dairy free side dish year round. This was actually the first recipe that we replaced our typical green bean casserole with 6 years ago. It's inexpensive, light and full of minerals. I don't remember where I got the original recipe from. And we're actually having Brussels sprouts instead this Thanksgiving. Enjoy.
