Mustard & Brown Sugar Glazed Green Beans

A sweet and tangy twist on an otherwise boring bean. 

Mustard & Brown Sugar Glazed Green Beans

Yield: 4 servings   Prep: 5 minutes   Cook: 10 minutes



  • 1 lb green beans
  • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

In a dry frying pan, toast the almonds over medium/high heat for a few minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.

Place green beans in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam to your desired tenderness. 3 minutes for a crisper bean, 5 for a tender bean.

Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, mustard, and vinegar and whisk together. Allow mixture to simmer for a minute. Add the green beans and almonds, combine and serve.

Beans can be exciting too! Serve this as a side dish for your next dinner and you’ll agree.
