Green beans with Thai peanut sauce - gluten-free, Paleo-friendly version!

The other day I came home from a quick trip to the grocery store with a handful of things that inspired me for this recipe. I looked at the counter and had green beans, cashew butter, and carrots. I thought... this reminds me of a Thai restaurant dish.

I looked around online but couldn't find a recipe for green beans with cashew or peanut sauce that I could do. But I knew what flavors I wanted! I made up this recipe and it turned out GREAT!

Use cashew or almond butter if you don't do well with peanuts. I used some gluten-free tamari sauce for the sauce but you could use coconut aminos if you're completely soy-free as well.

Paleo green beans with Thai peanut sauce


  • 1 lb green beans
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp sesame or coconut oil
  • Sprinkle sea salt


Garnish (Optional):
  • 1/2 carrot
  • 1 tbsp roasted peanuts


    1. Wash green beans and trim ends, cutting beans into 2-3" pieces.
    2. Heat coconut or sesame oil in a large saucepan. Press garlic with a garlic press and saute in the oil till lightly brown.
    3. Add green beans and cook on medium, covered, about 5 minutes till beans soften (they will look steamed). Uncover and cook another 5 minutes on medium, stirring regularly. Beans will turn brown.
    4. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix well. It'll be thick, but it'll distribute well on the hot beans.
    5. Toss cooked beans with sauce in pan.
    6. Optional garnish: shave carrot piece with a vegetable peeler. Crush roasted peanuts.
    7. Put in serving dish and top with garnish.

    The flavor combination is so savory and satisfying!
