"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.)"

"Loved them! Thanks for sharing!"
"A nice side dish with our pork chops tonight! Simple and flavourful, what more can you want? Thanks!"
"I sauteed one half of a chopped onion and added the garlic to it. I used fresh green beans, which I steamed a little bit first. This is a really tasty recipe. Thanks for sharing!"
"I used portabello mushrooms, which were perfect in this recipe. Also, in a moment of absentmindedness, added the mushrooms + fresh green beans + garlic to the sizzling oil simultaneously -- rather than in a staggered order, as the recipe recommends -- but the dish was still amazing!"
"This is a simple recipe that is great for a weeknight and perfect for a dinner party. I used baby portobello mushrooms and fresh beans. The almonds were sliced. After a few minutes cooking and a splash of soy sauce we had a delicious side."
"I loved this very simple yet delicious recipe! Although, I have to say I basically just threw some olive oil, fresh green beans and whole almonds in a saute pan and then threw a splash of soy in at the end and it was perfect! I thought the whole almonds would be cumbersome but it all tasted really good together. Thanks!"
"Very good green bean recipe. Quick and easy is a plus too. My husband took one bite and said "the green beans are perfect." Thanks for posting."
"I love almonds, I love mushrooms, I love garlic, and I love green beans. Recipe for Success is the name of this dinner party. I prepared and served your recipe, RMG, at my sister's recent Easter feast... an easily prepared recipe with plenty of flavour; I love the combination of green beans and fresh mushrooms, and do prepare it often. Because of the number of diners at the Easter feast, I had to increase the recipe quantities, but so what, there were no left-overs, unless they disappears into a handbag before the table was cleared away.... Thanks Red Meat Girl for making my job easier... :-)"
"Super flavor! Easy to make and the whole family loved it. Such a great twist to green beans! Thanks!"
"Awesome recipe! My kids sat down at the table & started their usual complaining about vegatables but after they tried it, they all loved it. Thank you for submitting a recipe all my kids can agree on."
"Hey There- Loved it, Loved it, Loved it! Not only is it VERY, VERY flavorful, but easy to make and lovely to look at. The only change I made was pecans for almonds as I didnt have almonds on hand. This got rave's from the BF-who until last night felt the only way to have green beans was Green Bean Almondine! Thanks for posting! Di"
"Well meow!.. I had my dinner party Friday night including this recipe for green beans that I have been chomping at the bit to try. And they certainly came up to my expectations. After dinner I asked my daughter if she wanted to take the few that were left over and she said it's too late to ask me. She had already packaged them up and into her goodie bag. They were wonderful and for sure I will make them many times. Thanks for posting this recipe."
"Fabulous creation, Meow! Simple to prepare and full of flavor. I took your advice and did add a splash of oyster sauce, and I really loved it. Thanks!"
