vegan green beans, while not my grandmother?s, are full of flavor with caramelized red onions and a light balsamic vinegar sauce. If balsamic vinegar isn?t your thing, you can use red wine vinegar or a dry red wine instead.

Recipe Ingredients for Green Beans with Carmelized Red Onions

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 medium red onions (about 1-3/4 pounds/794 g), each cut into 16 wedges
16 ounces (454 g) green beans, trimmed
1/2 cup (120 ml) vegetable broth
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (or red wine vinegar or dry red wine)
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
1 sea salt to taste
1 fresh ground black pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Green Beans with Carmelized Red Onions

  1. In the skillet, warm the olive oil over medium heat and add the onions. Cook until caramelized around the edges, about 20 minutes.

  2. While the onions cook, bring water to boil in the large pot. Add a bit of salt and the green beans. Cook uncovered until crisp-tender, about 6 to 7 minutes. Drain.

  3. Add the broth to the onions and stir, cooking for about 5 more minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, salt, and pepper, and stir.

  4. Add the green beans to the skillet and cover. Cook for about 2 minutes. Serve warm.
