Green Beans with Miso and AlmondsSubmitted by: CHEF_MEG
IntroductionDress up your green beans. Miso is a perfect replacement for butter in most sautéed dishes and offers a nice earthy, salty note to the beans.
Dress up your green beans. Miso is a perfect replacement for butter in most sautéed dishes and offers a nice earthy, salty note to the beans.
12 ounces green beans, trimmed and washed* (about 3 cups)
1 tablespoon chopped toasted almonds
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons shallot, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1 tablespoon miso paste
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
*You can use frozen in this recipe if you prefer.
If using fresh, steam in the microwave until crisp tender, or boil them in a medium saucepan for two to three minutes, then drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking.
Place a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil, and then the shallots and garlic.
Cook, stirring constantly, for one minute. Add the miso to the pan and cook another minute as you continue to stir.
Stir in 1/2 cup water, then add the green beans.
Cook for 2 minutes, remove from pan and sprinkle on the almonds. Serve warm.
Serving Size: Makes 4 servings (3/4 cups each)

This was excellent. We think maybe the kids would like it better without the black pepper and garlic, but the miso is a GREAT substitute for butter or other fatty sauces. (I used frozen green beans, white miso and reular yellow onion.) The almonds add a wonderful taste and texture. - 11/16/12
I make our French-style green beans with roasted almond slices - adding nothing else - and always get compliments on the dish & often am asked for the recipe. Folks seem surprised to learn that there are just two ingredients to the dish.
God bless! Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day! - 11/13/12
