Hibiscus Glazed Green Beans Recipe


  • 1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp hibiscus vinegar
  • 1 tsp hibiscus simple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp Organic Tea Stir Fry Tea Oil
  • 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 shallot, cut into one-quarter-inch disks
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup water (more if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 Tbsp sliced almonds, toasted

How to Make

  1. Combine 1 Tbsp of hibiscus vinegar with hibiscus simple syrup in a small bowl and mix well; set aside.
  2. Heat a heavy 12-inch skillet or large wok over high heat for 2 minutes. When pan is hot, pour in oil and a few seconds later, add green beans, garlic and shallot. Season beans well with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, carefully add water (it will steam) and a few seconds later add vinegar mixture. Stir beans and cover pan, leaving lid ajar. Cook until beans are tender but still have a slight crunch, about 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the remaining 2 tsp hibiscus vinegar. Add butter and toasted almonds and swirl pan just until butter is melted.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
