Tamari Green Beans

Someone mentioned the other day that they made Tamari Mushrooms and threw in some green beans, and once again, I was like 'why didn't I think of that?'

So I tried the same recipe but used green beans and it was really really really good.  Yes, it gets rated three 'reallys'!

Most soy sauce contains gluten (wheat) but tamari is soy sauce that is more natural and it's not too difficult to find.  If you have an Asian ingredient aisle in your grocery store, check it out.  Tamari is right next to the soy sauce.

Tamari Green Beans
makes 4 servings

2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces fresh green beans
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons tamari
ground black pepper to taste

Melt the butter in frying pan over medium heat; add the beans; cook and stir about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic; continue to cook and stir for 1 minute.

Add the tamari; cook the beans in the tamari until the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. 

1/2 cup of green beans = 1 serving of veggies

  1. We made these up as a side dish to our Parmesan Chicken last night. This is a very easy recipe to follow and the result is great. The only thing I may change for next time, would be to increase the amount of green beans.
