Shallot and Ginger Green Beans

Serves 4 to 6
Time 25 min
Make this vegetarian side dish, full of sautéed shallots, fresh ginger and toasted almonds, all year round.
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter or olive oil
  • 1 medium shallot sliced into thin rings
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 pounds green beans trimmed and cut into 1 to 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped toasted almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method

Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add ginger and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add green beans and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add thyme, salt, pepper and 3/4 cup water and cover. Cook until beans begin to brighten in color, about 3 minutes, then remove the lid and increase the heat to high. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the pan is dry and beans are tender, but still slightly crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer beans to a serving dish and top with chopped almonds.
