Stir-Fried Garlic Ginger Green Beans
-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.
