If you’re already planning your vegan holiday meals, put these sweet, fork-tender green beans on the menu.
Glazed Green Beans (Serves 4)
- 1 pound fresh green beans, ends trimmed
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 tablespoon tamari
- 1 tablespoon dry sherry
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup

- In a small bowl, whisk together tamari, sherry, syrup, and cornstarch. Transfer beans to a serving platter.
- Add tamari mixture to skillet and stir until it thickens. Pour over beans, tossing to coat.
