1/4 cup almond slivers

2 tablespoons olive oil 

1 pound fresh green beans, thinly sliced on the bias 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

1/2 cup blackberry preserves 

2 teaspoons soy sauce 

1 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger (or grated on a rasp)

1 clove garlic, finely minced or grated on a rasp 


In a large dry pan on medium heat, add the almonds and constantly toss until they become shiny and slightly golden. Remove to a plate to cool.

In the same large pan on medium-high heat, add the olive oil. When the oil begins to swirl, add the green beans, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Toss to coat while cooking until bright green, about 5 minutes.

Add the preserves, soy sauce, ginger and garlic to the pan. Toss to coat and cook until the sauce has soaked into the green beans. Serve with a sprinkle of the toasted almonds.
