<Miwa’s tips> ※Watch more on YouTube!
1. Use any nut butter you like. Tahini is also a great alternative to peanut butter.
2. Feel free to substitute broccoli, edamame or even cooked potatoes as opposed to the green beans.
3. Transfer the green beans into an ice bath to stop the cooking process after blanching them to retain the color and texture ( this step is optional).
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
