It is easy, quick, and always a crowd pleaser.

What you'll need

  • 3 small garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 lb green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1 tbsp. plus 1 teaspoon tamari
  • 2 tsp. raw honey


  • Step 1
    In a large skillet, saute the garlic in olive oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Step 2
    Add the green beans, water, tamari, and honey, and cook over medium-low heat until beans are soft but still slightly crispy. If the water evaporates too quickly, keep adding water by the tablespoon-just enough to keep the beans steaming.
  • Step 3
    SUBSTITUTIONS: You can use this same recipe for asparagus and many other vegetables.
