Place beans in salted water in Dutch oven, bring to boil. Boil for 7 minutes until green beans are crisp and tender, drain. Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process.
Dry your Dutch oven and add olive oil and sauté garlic for about 1 minute over medium heat. Add green beans and sauté another 2 or 3 minutes, give a stir. Add almonds, 3/4 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and sauté another minute, stirring occasionally.
Place beans in serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning.
