Seared Sriracha Green Beans

These spicy Seared Sriracha Green Beans with toasty, crunchy almonds and lots of garlic are the simplest and tastiest way to eat green beans! 
Vegan | Gluten Free
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 6

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup whole raw almonds crushed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil divided
  • 1 pound fresh green beans stems trimmed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari or coconut aminos
  • pinch salt as needed

Instructions

  • Heat a large cast iron pan over medium heat. Add the crushed almonds to toast, stirring frequently for 3 to 5 minutes. Move them to a plate and wipe the pan clean before returning it to the stovetop.
  • Increase the heat to medium high and add 1 tablespoon of the avocado oil. Add the green beans and cook to your desired tenderness, tossing occasionally.
  • Push the beans aside and add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Add the garlic and cook for just about 10 seconds before tossing them with the green beans.
  • Add the sriracha and soy sauce and half of the crushed almonds. Toss to coat the beans and remove from the heat. Sprinkle on the remaining almonds and taste test. Add a pinch of salt, if needed.
  • Try not to eat all of them before serving! :)

Notes

Be sure to use tamari sauce (labeled gluten free) or coconut aminos to make this gluten free.
