Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Instructions

Cook the green beans: Either steam them, or boil them. If boiling, bring a large pot of water to a boil, and cook the green beans until crisp-tender, or however you prefer to eat them. (It takes about 5 minutes to cook the beans to crisp-tender, and I really dislike overcooked vegetables so I watch them carefully.) When the beans are cooked, carefully drain the water and rinse the beans under cold water in a colander until they are no longer hot. Toast the sliced almonds in a small skillet over medium heat until they just start to brown. Set aside. Combine the balsamic glaze and Dijon mustard in a small bowl and mix well until all the mustard clumps are gone. Finely dice the half of the red onion. In a large pan or a wok, saute the red onion in olive oil for 5 minutes, or until the onion has softened. Add the salt and stir. Add the balsamic glaze mixture and the dried cranberries and let them cook together for a minute. Add the green beans and the toasted almonds and gently toss them in the wok to coat them in the balsamic glaze. Remove from heat. Serve with crumbled goat cheese. Make sure to get some of that cranberry/almond saucy goodness that might sink to the bottom of the serving dish.
