I found a recipe which, needless to say, I adapted somewhat! It was delicious and really very easy. With green beans in great supply right now at farmer's markets and the grocery store, it's the perfect time to try this.
Green beans (I bought enough for two people)
Vegetable oil or cooking spray (if you want to keep the calories low)
1 tsp. grated ginger (I used the jarred stuff--don't tell!)
1 garlic clove minced (ditto on the garlic--it makes weeknight meals so fast!)
2 TBL water
1 TBL soy sauce
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes or, I used 1/2 tsp. sirracha
Wash beans and trim ends.
Boil or steam your green beans. I put them in boiling water for three minutes. Then drain and plunge into cold water to stop the cooking.
Combine water, soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil and pepper or sirracha, whisk well and set aside.
Coat a skillet with oil or cooking spray. Add ginger and garlic and saute for several seconds. Add beans and saute for five minutes.
Add reserved water/soy mixture and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
Serve and enjoy!
