2. Prepare a large bowl of ice water. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook beans until crisp-tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Drain the beans and transfer to the bowl of ice water. Remove green beans and drain well.

4. In a large bowl, combine the sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and remaining 1 tablespoon of tamari. Add the drained green beans and toss to coat. Garnish with roasted almonds, fresh cilantro, sesame seeds, as desired. Serve immediately, while warm.

Very good. I'm not a big green bean fan, but even so I found this to be delicious.

'Shocking' the cooked green beans in ice water prevents them from overcooking, preserving their bright-green color. The tamari almonds are delicious. You may want to make extra for snacking.
