Spicy Green Beans
Add some spice to your life with this amazing green bean recipe.
Cook Time:15 min
- 1 tsp coconut or olive oil
- 1/2 lb green beans, ends trimmed, chopped into bite-size pieces
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp siracha (or 2 tsp chili flakes)
- 1 tsp ginger, grated
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp crushed roasted walnuts or almonds
Add the oil to a frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add the green beans and let them cook undisturbed for about 1 minute.
Mix the garlic, soy sauce and siracha in a bowl (and the ginger and lemon juice, if using). The beans should have turned bright green.
Add about ¼ cup of water to the pan. Cook another 2 minutes, until the water is mostly gone. Pour the sauce into the pan and toss gently to coat.
Cook another 2 minutes, until everything is fragrant and most of the liquid is gone. Taste and add more hot sauce or soy sauce if you want the beans hotter or saltier.
Top with walnuts/almonds if using.
