    spatchcock's Note:

    I created this Asian-inspired dish last night. It is permissible for phase one of the South Beach Diet and we LOVED it. I used frozen french beans from Trader Joe's, but fresh beans would be wonderful! Amounts are highly approximated; I didn't measure when making this, but this is pretty similar to what I did. (If using fresh beans, you'd probably want to blanch them in boiling water and then plunge in ice water, and *then* add to the pan.)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 -3 garlic cloves
    • 6 large button mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2-3/4 cup whole almond (more or less to taste and to fit your dieting goals)
    • 1/2 lb frozen French-cut green beans (like those found at Trader Joe's but any would work, including fresh, also, you may want to add more)
    • soy sauce, to taste


    1. 1
      Heat oil over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Sauté garlic until soft, being careful not to let it burn.
    3. 3
      Add sliced mushrooms and sauté until they look fairly cooked and shiny (about 5 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add almonds and sauté for a couple more minutes.
    5. 5
      Finally, add frozen green beans and splash of soy sauce.
    6. 6
      Stir frequently until beans are just cooked and, of course, no longer frozen.
    7. 7
      If not on the south beach diet or watching sugar intake, you could add oyster sauce or other Asian condiment to the mixture.
