If you’re looking to amp up your usual veggies for Thanksgiving or an everyday meal, these this Crispy Miso glazed Green Beans are for you!
A fresh take on a traditional veggie, they are crisp, savory, a little salty, a little nutty, and addictively delicious!
All you need is 4 ingredients and 15 mins!
You’ll need fresh green beans, miso, butter or dairy-free butter and sliced almonds.
And they come together quickly!
First you need to mix the miso and butter with a spoon or fork until well combined so it makes a super simple but uber savory miso butter.
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.
Lastly, the green beans are sautéed with the miso butter for a few minutes and topped with the toasted almonds.
The entire dish comes together in 15 minutes or less!
This recipe is adapted from and inspired by my long time friend, herself a total foodie and mom of a celiac child, who has been serving this at Thanksgiving for years.

Recipe type: Veggies, Sides, Thanksgiving
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan optional
Serves: serves 8
2 tablespoons butter or dairy free butter, softened
2 tablespoons gluten-free white miso (we use Miso Master Organic Mellow White Miso)
1½ - 2 pounds green beans, ends trimmed
heaping ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted
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.
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 ½ 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.
