Balsamic Glazed Green Beans with Cranberries and Almonds

Servings: 4 servings
Author: Lauren Kelly


  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey I used raw honey, but you can use 100% maple syrup if you'd like it to be vegan
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces green beans ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries


  • In a small bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar and honey. Set aside.
  • Place garlic and oil in large skillet and cook under medium heat for 2-3 minutes until softened.
  • Add green beans and stir. Cook for about 10 minutes until green beans are still bright green and crispy.
  • Add balsamic mixture, almonds and cranberries and mix again. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
