Almond-Garlic Green Beans

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

Makes about 4 side servings


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)


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.


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.
