1/2 cup chopped onion
1 ( 4 oz) can sliced water chestnuts ( I didn't use this)

Cook beans or 8 to 10 minutes in 1 2/3 cup salted water. Drain and save the liquid. Saute almonds in a little oil until lightly browned. Add celery and onion and saute 2 more minutes. Combine beans almonds, celery and onion.  Add to sauce then stir in water chestnuts. Place in a 9 x 13 inch pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 25 minutes until hot. 

1 2/3 cups liquid from beans

3 t. vinegar
3 t. soy sauce
3 T. sugar

Combine liquid, bouillon, vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. Simmer for 3 minutes. Mix cornstarch and water. Add to simmering liquid and stir until slightly thickened.
