Introduction

Dress up your green beans. Miso is a perfect replacement for butter in most sauteed dishes and offers a nice earthy, salty note to the beans.

Ingredients

    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.

Directions

If using frozen green beans, cook according to the package directions.
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.
