Teriyaki Green Beans have all the flavor of your favorite take-out food, but you get to control the amount of sugar and salt that goes in.
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or coconut oil if you want a slight coconut flavor)
  • 1 lb (450 g) green beans, stems trimmed
  • 1 medium onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 4 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • ½ tablespoon fresh-grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos or tamari sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, for topping
  1. Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add all ingredients except the sesame seeds and bring up to a boil. Cover the skillet, turn the heat down to simmer, and cook until the beans are tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Uncover the skillet, turn the heat up to medium-high, and cook until the liquid is thickened.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
