@flutterbi: I’m definitely going to give the sweet potato souffle recipe a try!!! YUM YUM!! 

Here is mine, super super easy! I don’t usually put the ginger in but you can if you’d like.  You can also add more/less garlic…

Almond Garlic String Beans:

1 pound string beans, trimmed
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup olive oil
4 to 5 garlic cloves, smashed
1-inch piece ginger, grated
1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
1/4 cup red wine vinegar


Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the beans and cook for just 1 to 2 minutes, until they turn bright green.  Strain them and run under cold water to stop them from cooking.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the almonds and toast them until golden brown, about 4 minutes, shaking the pan often to avoid burning the almonds. Remove the toasted almonds from the pan.

Return the skillet to the burner and increase the heat to medium-high. Heat the olive oil in the pan and add a few pinches of salt, the garlic, (ginger), and chili flakes. Cook just until the garlic starts to brown. Add the vinegar and let cook down for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and toss in the beans to coat them thoroughly.

Serve on a platter and scatter the top with the toasted almonds.
