  • 1
    Remove ends of beans. Leave beans whole, or cut into 1-inch pieces. Place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water in saucepan or skillet (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place green beans in steamer basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Steam 10 minutes.

    Cook almonds in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown and fragrant.
  • 3
    Remove tough stems of mushrooms; cut mushrooms into 1/4-inch slices. Heat olive and sesame oils in 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook mushrooms and garlic in oil 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in soy sauce and green beans. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until green beans are crisp-tender. Sprinkle with almonds.

Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you're pressed for time, you can purchase two 12-ounce bags of precut, washed fresh green beans. You'll find them in the produce section of your supermarket.
  • Once cultivated only in Japan and Korea, shiitake mushrooms are now cultivated in the United States. The meaty flesh has a full-bodied, some even say steaklike, flavor. The stems are tough but add a wonderful flavor to stocks and sauces. (Discard the stems after they've been used for flavoring.)
