  • 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!
Serve immediately while warm, or at room temp.
Made gluten-free with tamari.
