Thanksgiving Green Bean With Almonds

There are many versions of recipes for a Chinese dressed turkey as well as Peking duck and other fowl. This one will be great as Thanksgiving side dish.

4 servings

1 pkg frozen green beans
1/3 cup of slivered almonds
2 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp pre chopped garlic
1/2 tsp ground ginger

Microwave the green beans on high for about 8 minutes or until completely defrosted.

Toast the almond slivers by cooking them on high in a non stick pan without any oil. Toss them consistently until they are slightly brown. You can do this either by moving the pan around slightly so that the almonds seem to "jump", or you can use a spatula to flip them.

Once the almonds are toasted, take them off the burner and add 2 tbsp sesame oil and the chopped garlic. Return to heat and cook for about 2 minutes.

Stir in the green beans and the ground ginger and cook on high for about 10 minutes.

Serve as a side dish.
