    Almond Flour “Parmesan”

    ½ cup almond flour (or ¾ cup almonds,
    finely ground, soaked and dehydrated)

    ½ tsp garlic powder

    ½ tsp onion powder

    ½ tsp Himalayan salt

    Freshly ground black pepper

    Green Beans

    36 fresh green or yellow beans

    2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

    1 tsp Bragg liquid aminos


    Place all Almond Flour Parmesan ingredients in a small bowl and mix until well combined. (This will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 2 weeks.)

    Fill bottom half of a steamer with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Place beans in
    a steaming basket and steam for 4 to 6 minutes or until tender, being careful not to overcook. Remove from heat, drain well and transfer to a medium bowl. (If they are really wet, lightly pat dry with a towel.)

    Pour in olive oil and Bragg and toss gently. Add half the “Parmesan” mixture and toss gently again. Pour beans into a serving dish and sprinkle with a little more Parmesan. Serve with the remaining Parmesan. Enjoy.
