LilSugar's Asian Inspired Green Beans
12 ounces of green beans
1 tbs toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup of minced yellow onion
1 minced clove of minced garlic
6 ounces of sliced mushrooms
5 ounces shredded carrots
2 green onions
2 - 3 ounces of toasted and unsalted sliced almonds
soy sauce (to taste)
rice vinegar (to taste)
Sarachi sauce (optional)
Blanch green beans, then strain and set to the side.
In a pan, saute minced onion and garlic, mushrooms and carrots in 1 tbs of toasted sesame oil.
If you need to add moisture to speed up the process, add two tbs of water to the hot pan.
Toss in the sliced green onion about one minute before you take the veggies off of the heat.
Next mix all the vegetables together in a large bowl.
Shake in the almonds.
Add a splash of soy sauce (I use the low sodium variety) to taste.
Then, do the same with rice wine vinegar.
Add a dash of sea salt and a pinch of pepper before plating and serving.
Salt and pepper to taste.
If you want to spice the dish up, put a little Sarachi sauce on the side.
