Green beans salad: Asian style 
🔷 ingredients 
  • 2 lbs fresh green beans, trimmed
  • ½ cup almonds or cashews
  • 2-3 tablespoon liquid aminos ( or soy sauce ) 
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger 
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1-2 tbs fiber syrup ( or maple syrup or honey) 
  • â…” cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • ÂĽ cup chopped green onions
  • Spicy 🌶 pepper fresh thinly sliced (optional)
🔷Instructions: 
  1. Fill a large bowl with ice water.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and bring the water back to a boil. Cook the beans until cooked but still bright green, 3-5 minutes. Drain and add to the ice water bath to stop the cooking. Drain the beans well. Dab with paper towels to dry slightly.
  3. Toast the almonds / cashews on a non stick skillet. Once toasted, the green beans for 2-3 minutes for extra that crunch, turn the heat up to medium-high and add the soy sauce. Toss to coat and cook until the liquid has evaporated – this should happen fairly quickly, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and syrup . Add the green beans to the dressing and stir to coat. Serve topped with the cilantro, green onions and glazed cashews. ( the liquid amino/ soy substitute  The salt so you might need to add more ) 
  5. I squeezed 1/2 fresh lemon on it before serving👌🏻 enjoy
