Equipment

  • Skillet

Ingredients
 
 

Optional:

  • parsley to garnish

Instructions
 

  • In a skillet on low heat, toast the almonds carefully to prevent them from burning. Reserve.
  • In the same skillet over medium-low heat, melt the vegan butter (or margarine), add the sliced spring onion and garlic powder, and cook for a minute.
  • Stir in the clementine and lemon juices and 1 tablespoon water. About 2 minutes. Reserve.
  • If you have a steamer, steam your greens for about 2 minutes; if you don’t, return the empty skillet to the stovetop, add the green beans, ½ cup water, and one teaspoon salt. Cover and cook over medium heat, occasionally stirring, until the beans are tender but have a crunchy bite, about 8 minutes.
  • Off the heat, add the reserved toasted almonds, the spring onions, and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve with chopped parsley if desired.
