These green beans have so much flavor from the lime, ginger and cilantro. We love the crunch of the green beans and the peanuts. Serve as a side dish or on top of rice for a main course.

SERVING SIZE

2-4

INGREDIENTS

1 pound green beans, trimmed

1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/2 tablespoon shallot, finely chopped

1 teaspoon ginger, grated

1 garlic clove, grated

1/3 cup peanuts, chopped

1/2 tablespoon lime zest

1/2 tablespoon lime juice

1/2 lemongrass stalk, grated

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Working in batches, blanch the green beans for 4 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of ice water with a slotted spoon. Once cooled, drain the green beans.

Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a large saute pan over medium heat and saute shallot for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the ginger, lemongrass, garlic and peanuts and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl.

Whisk in the lime zest, lime juice, remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, soy sauce and cilantro. Add in the green beans and toss to combine. Serve as a side dish or over rice for a main dish.
