  • 300 g green beans washed and with ends cut off (2 cups)
  • 3 shallots chopped finely
  • 60 g flaked almonds (½ cup)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut palm sugar / maple syrup (or any other brown sugar)


  • Boil or steam green beans for 3-5 minutes (or until tender). 
  • In a frying pan, toast the flaked almonds for a few minutes (no oil needed). Toss every now and then to make sure they don’t burn. Once done, set aside. 
  • In a frying pan, heat the olive oil. Add the shallots and sugar. Fry for a few minutes until the shallots are soft. Remove from the heat and add the flaked almonds. 
  • Place the green beans on a flat serving dish. Sprinkle the shallot and flaked almond mix over the beans.
