Almond-Garlic Green Beans


Vegan, gluten-free (with tamari), oil-free

Makes about 4 side servings


Ingredients

12 oz. fresh green beans

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup vegetable broth

1 1/2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)

1/4 cup sliced almond (or slivers)


Directions

Trim ends off green beans. Mince garlic.

In a skillet over med-high heat, add vegetable broth and bring to a light simmer.

Once simmering, add green beans. Cover and let steam for about 3 minutes.

Add minced garlic and stir with tongs to combine. Re-cover and let cook for 2-3 minutes.

Reduce heat and add tamari. Stir well and cook for 1 more minute (or until desired tenderness).

Taste and add more tamari or salt/pepper if desired.

Transfer to a serving dish (be sure to include the tiny but flavorful garlic bits!)

Sprinkle with almonds and serve.


Notes:

You can also add the almonds straight to the pan (either with the garlic or tamari) to heat/toast them and soak up some of the savory flavor!

Can serve immediately while warm, or at room temp.
