And they come together quickly!

While this cools in the refrigerator for 5 minutes, toast the sliced almonds in a dry saute pan.

Then the green beans are quickly sautéed in a dry pan to crisp up.  They will get charred a bit.

Then you add some water to the pan and steam them for  just a minute or two to get tender.

Prep Time5 minutes

Total Time15 minutes
Course: Sides, Thanksgiving, Veggies
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan optional
Author: Healthy Gluten-free Family


  • 2 tablespoons butter or dairy free butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free white miso we use Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso
  • 2 pounds green beans ends trimmed
  • heaping 1/4 cup sliced almonds toasted


Miso Butter

  • In a small bowl, mix butter and miso with a fork or spoon until well combined. Refrigerate 5 minutes.

Toast almonds if you have't already

  • Heat a small saute pan over medium high heat, add sliced almonds and sauté for 2-3 minutes constantly shaking the pan or stirring the almonds. They will quickly brown so don't leave them, and remove from heat when toasted to your liking. This step only takes a few minutes but greatly enhances the nutty flavor.

Green Beans

  • Heat a large nonstick sauté pan (preferably one with a cover) over medium high heat until well heated. Add green beans and sauté in the dry pan for 3-4 minutes or until starting to crisp and "blacken" or "char" a bit.
  • Add 4-5 tablespoons of water to cover the base of the pan, stir green beans, then cover pan and steam for about 1-2 minutes or until water evaporates. Remove cover. Green beans will be green and tender but not overly soft.
  • Add miso butter* to the green beans and toss to coat. *Start with 1/2 the miso butter and add more as desired. Saute an additional 1-2 minutes over medium heat or until miso butter melts and green beans crisp. Do not over cook or beans will get too soft. Remove from heat and place in a serving bowl.
  • Top with toasted almonds and serve.

Tip: if you have extras, heat them up the next day in a saute pan to get crispy again.
