Prepare the beans: Wash and clean the beans. Cut the ends of the beans.
Toast the almonds: In a large pan on medium heat, place the almond slices. Toast the almonds, keeping an eye on them to ensure they don’t burn – about 1 minute. Remove the almonds and set aside.
Steam the beans: Add about 1/4 cup water to the large pan on medium heat. Add the green beans, cover and let steam about 6 minutes or until the beans are cooked but still slightly crunchy.
Garnish: Add the lemon EVOO to the green beans and toss the geen beans to evenly coat them. Place the green beans in a serving dish and top with almonds, radish sprouts and fleur de sel.
