  • 2 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 16 oz fresh green beans
  • 1 1/2 tsp fresh garlic
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh young green scallions, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp fresh shallots, chopped
  • 0 1/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add 2 teaspoons salt and stir in trimmed green beans. Cook for 3 minutes until bright green, then strain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking. Drain again and set aside.
  2. Mince or press garlic and mix with ½ teaspoon salt to form a paste. Set aside.
  3. In a 10-inch non-stick skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Once warm, add scallions and shallot and sauté until soft, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add almond milk and cream, cooking and stirring until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add green beans, tossing with the milk and scallion sauce until beans are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
