Vegetables Fit for a King and to keep a king fit! /By Gael Stirler

/It includes this recipe:  *Green Beans and Toasted Almonds*

/Braising, a cross between steaming and roasting, gives these green 
beans a sweet, nutty flavor that is further enhanced by a sprinkle of 
olive oil and toasted almonds. I call this my Medieval version of Fried 
Onion and Green Bean Casserole. This is based on a recipe from 1545 that 
I crossed with another period recipe that included almonds. Other 
similar historic green bean recipes include currants, sweet wine, and 
butter. /
