  • wok
  • tongs


  • 2 tablespoons water for steam
  • 1 pound green beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (we like a lot)
  • garlic salt add to taste


  • Trim and wash the beans, chop garlic, and measure the other ingredients.
  • In a wok, or large skillet add the water and green beans. Place a lid on top. On med high heat steam for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, and drain any extra water. You will want the beans to be firm, and not soft. They will continue to cook with the next steps.
  • Set pan back on the heat and add the olive oil, garlic, sliced almonds, and salt. Using tongs toss the beans so they're well coated with olive oil and seasoning.
  • Cook until the garlic and almonds start to brown and turn crisp. For about 5-7 minutes. (check for your desired texture) Remove from heat and enjoy!
