In a frying pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onions and cook for about 2-3 minutes, until softened, then stir in the garlic and the salt. Cook for another 2 minutes. Set aside.
1 clove garlic, 1 small yellow onion, 3 Tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon salt
Wash and trim the green beans.
1 pound green beans
For a 6-quart Instant Pot, pour 1 cup of broth or water into the inner pot. For an 8-quart Instant Pot, pour 1 ½ cups of broth or water into the inner pot.
1- 1 ½ cups vegetable broth or water
Place a steamer basket in the inner pot of the Instant Pot and add the green beans to the steamer basket.
Close the lid and check that the venting knob is sealed.
For crisper green beans, set the cooking time to 0 minutes on high pressure. For softer green beans, set the cooking time to 1 minute on high pressure.
After the cooking time is finished, release the pressure. Carefully switch the venting knob to the venting position, watching out for the release of the steam.
Remove the green beans from the Instant Pot, stir in the onion and garlic mixture, garnish with almonds, and serve.
