When You’re Sick of Green Beans

My dad stopped by for dinner. When he left all the green beans were gone, and EVERYONE ate them (the roasted potatoes too, but that's not exactly a hard sell). Here's the recipe. Feel free to sub another Asian supermarket selection. We've rarely met one we didn't like (if it's spicy, add with care).

1 pound-ish green beans, ends trimmed

2-ish teaspoons hoisin sauce

Couple big pinches garlic powder

Tablespoon-ish sesame seeds

Veg oil

In large skillet add 2 teaspoons oil over medium heat. Add green beans, stirring for a couple of minutes. Add hoisin sauce & garlic powder, stir it up. Add maybe 2 tablespoons water to steam beans. Put a lid on it for 2-3 minutes. Remove lid and raise heat if necessary to get rid of excess liquid. Add sesame seeds and finish cooking beans to taste.

The whole thing takes less time to make than explain.

Eat – B

Btw chopped fresh ginger is a great add in, fresh garlic too – unless you're lazy 🙂
