  • parsley to garnish


  • Toast almonds. In a skillet on low heat, toast the almonds carefully to prevent them from burning. Reserve.
    ½ cup sliced almonds
  • Melt the vegan butter. 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.
    1 spring onion, 2 tablespoons vegan butter, 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Add juices. Stir in the clementine and lemon juices and 1 tablespoon water. About 2 minutes. Reserve.
    1 lemon, 1 clementine
  • Steam green beans. 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.

  • Season. 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.
