Stir-Fried Garlic Ginger Green Beans

Stir-Fried Garlic Ginger Green Beans

(serves 3-4)

-1 1b of green beans, ends trimmed

-4 medium garlic cloves, minced

-1 inch ginger, minced

-1 scant Tbsp. soy sauce

-1 wedge of lime

-1/4 tsp. Sriracha, plus more for drizzling

-1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Cook green beans in boiling water for one minute.  Drain and run under cold water.  With a clean dish towel, dry green beans thoroughly.  Heat olive oil in large skillet.  Add garlic and ginger, and saute for 45 seconds.  Add green beans.  Stir in soy sauce and Sriracha.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, until beans just start to become tender.  Beans should retain bright green color and a bit of crispness.  Squeeze lime over top.  Serve, drizzling extra Sriracha on top, if desired.

    Mmmm… looks great! Here in our southern climate, we can get several plantings of beans to mature. Our fall planting is just making the first small beans now, so we will soon have an abundance! Perfect timing on this recipe!

    The pesto recipe looks great, also– very similar to our recipe. One of our favorites! We grow our basil in pots, and can shelter them on the back porch when it gets a little cooler. It often produces until the first hard frost, which may not come until late December.

    Thanks for sharing these vegetarian delights!

    Looks so good. I actually made something similar, ok not really, I guess only similar because it was green beans. I made some tonight with cumin, black pepper and some green olive mustard.

    I love green beans. I have some fresh ones in my fridge from my mom’s farm and I plan to throw it in some stir fry on Friday.
