Green Beans Almondine

3 Ingredients & Not a Can in Sight.

While these sautéed green beans make for a fast and delicious side dish any night of the week—and just about any time of year!—they’re one of our favorite Thanksgiving upgrades. Just three, whole ingredients (we’re not counting oil and salt—those are a given) and an unbelievably quick preparation make it a refreshingly healthy, wholesome addition to your holiday menu. All you’ll need for this green bean recipe is:

  • Green beans. Also known as string beans or haricots verts, look for a vibrant green hue and a strong “snap” to ensure freshness.
  • Garlic. Lots of it—6 cloves to be exact.
  • Slivered almonds.

How to Cook Green Beans?

Cooking green beans is a breeze. You don’t have to do much prep—especially if you have the ability to delegate the green bean trimming to the tiny members of your household—garlic green beans are about speed and celebrating the vibrancy and satisfying crunch of fresh string beans. Here’s how to make it:

  1. Toast the slivered almonds that make these green beans “amandine”!
  2. Sauté the green beans in your favorite skillet.
  3. When the beans take on an even brighter green hue and soften, add the garlic cloves.
  4. Sprinkle with almonds and salt to taste.
  5. Serve!

Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts Slaw

Ingredients

4 servings

1 small head or 1/2 of a large head of broccoli
6 oz. brussels sprouts, trimmed, thinly sliced lengthwise
1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
2 oil-packed anchovy fillets (optional)
1/2 oz. Parmesan, finely grated, plus more, shaved, for serving
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted
1/4 cup unsalted roasted almonds, coarsely chopped

Trim broccoli stalk and peel. Halve head lengthwise. Starting at the crown, thinly slice both halves, including the stalk (alternatively, you can slice both broccoli and brussels sprouts in a food processor). Combine broccoli and brussels sprouts in a large bowl and toss with 1/2 tsp. salt. Let sit 10 minutes to soften slightly.

Meanwhile, chop anchovies, if using, then mash to a paste with the side of a chef’s knife. Combine anchovies, grated Parmesan, oil, and lemon juice in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle over slaw; toss to coat. Serve topped with olives, almonds, and shaved Parmesan.

Slaw (without almonds) can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill. Add almonds just before serving.

Warm Sorghum Salad With Pickled Beets

Sorghum is an ancient African grain that came here through the transatlantic slave trade; Gullah farmers in South Carolina have continued its legacy,” notes chef Maricela Vega, the chef at Atlanta restaurant 8ARM and founder of Chicomecóatl, an organization centering the foodways of Indigenous diaspora. “It’s nutty and chewy and good for agroecology—providing positive benefits to soil and ultimately helping to reverse the effects of climate change. In colder months I pair it with hardy greens for their high mineral content. Spicy guajillo oil, zesty pickled beets, and lush sesame crème round out a perfect winter grain bowl. No sorghum? Sub wheat berries or even brown rice in a pinch.

Ingredients

4 Servings

SORGHUM
2 cups sorghum, soaked overnight, drained
And 2 sprigs thyme, marjoram, or oregano
2 bay leaves
8 cups vegetable stock or water
2 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. Diamond Crystal or 1 Tbsp. plus ½ tsp. Morton kosher salt
GUAJILLO OIL
4 dried guajillo chiles, halved, seeds removed
1 tsp. Diamond Crystal or ½ tsp. Morton kosher salt, plus more
4 whole black peppercorns
 1 cup oil from Allium Confit
¼cup apple cider vinegar
ASSEMBLY
2 Tbsp. (or more) grapeseed oil
1 large bunch mustard greens (about 1 lb.), coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp. cilantro leaves with tender stems
1½ cups mixed tender herb leaves (such as parsley, mint, and/or dill), plus more for serving
1 cup Sesame Crème
1 cup drained Pickled Beets

Preparation

SORGHUM

Bring sorghum, thyme, bay leaves, stock, and salt to a boil in a large pot over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until sorghum is tender, 80–90 minutes. Drain and transfer sorghum to a large bowl. Pick out and discard thyme and bay leaves.

GUAJILLO OIL

Place chiles and 1 tsp. Diamond Crystal or ½ tsp. Morton kosher salt in a medium bowl. Pour 2 cups hot water over chiles and cover; let sit 15 minutes to soften.

Drain chiles and transfer to a blender; add peppercorns, allium oil, and vinegar. Blend on high speed until smooth and bright red; season with salt. Pour over sorghum, tossing to coat. Taste and season with more salt if needed.

ASSEMBLY

Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Add mustard greens a handful at a time, letting wilt slightly before adding more. Cook, stirring occasionally and adding more oil if needed, until wilted and charred in spots, about 4 minutes. Add greens to sorghum and toss to combine, then toss in cilantro and 1½ cups tender herbs.

Smear Sesame Crème in shallow bowls, dividing evenly; mound sorghum salad over and top with Pickled Beets and more tender herbs.

Vegan Stuffing

This vegan stuffing recipe is best when it’s made with dry, day-old bread. I recommend buying or baking your bread one to three days in advance so that it really soaks up the savory flavor of the onion, celery, mushrooms, and herbs.

  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 8×12 or 9×13 casserole dish.
  • In a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, mushrooms, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and several grinds of fresh pepper, and let the mushrooms cook until they begin to soften, 5 to 8 minutes, stirring only occasionally. Add the garlic, celery, sage, and rosemary, and cook until everything is soft and the mushrooms are golden brown, 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar, stir, and scrape any bits off the bottom of the pan. Add the bread and the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and toss to coat. Add the kale and cook until it begins to wilt, about 1 minute. Add 1 cup of the broth and stir.
  • Transfer to a casserole dish and pour the remaining 1 cup broth evenly over the stuffing.
  • Sprinkle with the dried cranberries, remaining whole sage leaves and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let sit for at least 15 minutes or until ready to serve.
