Spicy Green Beans

Spicy Green Beans

These ginger garlic green beans are so good and would be fantastic with eggplant, mushrooms, or any other of your favorite veggies. Serve as a side or with a side of rice for a more complete meal.




1 pound green beans, ends trimmed

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

2 teaspoons sugar

1/4 to 1/2 tsp hot chili flakes, depending on your heat preference

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 tablespoon olive or sesame oil

1-2 tablespoons garlic, minced

1-2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced



Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Blanch the green beans for 3-5 minutes, then drain and place in an ice bath to prevent them from continuing to cook. After the green beans have cooled, drain them for the next step.

In a small bowl, mix soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, chili flakes and pepper. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Cook the green beans, garlic and ginger until lightly browned, about 1 minute.

Stir in the soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed and coats the green beans, about 2 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
