Tastefully Vegan Cookbook

1 lb fresh or frozen green beans

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast flakes
Salt or garlic salt to taste (optional)

1 Tbsp sesame seeds

¾ cup sliced or slivered almonds

Snap or French cut green beans. Simmer beans, covered, in a large skillet with a small amount of wateruntil tender. Sprinkle lightly with salt if desired. Meanwhile, prepare almonds by placing them on acookie sheet in the oven at 250 degrees, and roast until lightly toasted. Or, heat in a frying pain without oil over mid-low heat, stirring often until lightly browned. Watch carefully to prevent burning. When beans have completed cooking, add yeast to water remaining in the skillet and stir until dissolved. Add more water if necessary until it has the appearance of melted butter. Spoon green beans into a shallow serving dish and garnish with almonds and sesame seeds.
