  • ¼

    cup grated ginger

  • 6

    cloves garlic, minced or grated

  • 2

    tbsp oil

  • 2

    lbs green beans, ends cut off

  • Salt to taste


Boil large pot of water. Add beans and cook for 3 minutes. The beans should still be crunchy. Drain immediately and plunge beans into large bowl of ice water to stop cooking and ensure the beans retain their color. Drain. If needed, the beans can be refrigerated at this point for up to a day before proceeding (keep a damp paper towel over them). Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and beans. Stir to coat and heat through. Salt, if desired.
