If you would like to learn more about this vegan cookbook make sure you visit my friends blog where she explains a little bit more about her cookbook. You will be able to see some other recipes from her cookbook as well.

This tamari green beans stir-fry literally took about 5-7 minutes to make, not more. I actually used frozen green beans, since I love green beans I always keep them on hand, and the recipe worked perfectly. You can also use fresh green beans, which is what the recipe calls for. Whatever you prefer.

This time around I serve the green beans with fried eggs, which is something I don’t do often. I just needed something really quick to make and serve with the green beans so the eggs where perfect, plus my kids love them.

If you are vegan, Tamari would be the substitute for soy sauce. You can use either one but if you are vegan, then Tamari is for you.

The almonds add a little bit of crunch to this recipe as well as some healthy fats, minerals and vitamins so make sure you don’t skip these.
