Such a lovely combination of flavors. Don’t rush to shake the pan and toss the green beans before they blister; they need a little time to char.

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp white miso
1 tbsp coconut or agave nectar
3 tbsp virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 lbs haricots verts or green beans, trimmed
Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
Flaky sea salt, freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

Mix the garlic, lime juice, miso, and coconut nectar in a small bowl to combine. Set the garlic mixture aside.


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add the green beans and cook, undisturbed, until beginning to blister, about 2 minutes. Toss and continue to cook, tossing often, until tender and blistered in spots, 8–12 minutes. 


Remove the skillet from heat, pour in the garlic mixture, and toss the green beans to coat. Add the red pepper flakes; season with sea salt and black pepper.
Transfer to a platter and top with the chopped cilantro.
