miso paste and caramelized shallots bring these green beans to life!
Combine miso, lemon juice and water in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a dry cast iron pan over medium-high and toast almonds for about 2 to 3 minutes tossing occasionally until golden brown and fragrant. Remove into a dish and set aside.
Return the pan to medium-high heat and add another tablespoon of oil to the pan. Toss in shallots and green beans. Lay in an even layer and allow to cook about 2 to 3 minutes, then toss again, and let cook another 3 minutes. You want the cast iron hot but it shouldn't be smoking too much. Lower heat to medium if necessary. You want the beans to be bright green and still slightly crisp and the shallots to be caramelized. Turn off the heat and let cool for about 30 seconds.
you can use frozen green beans, just cook from frozen. No need to let them thaw!
