Chinese-style green beans (OAMC)

These beans can be made up in bulk as a OAMC vegetable and frozen for later. Don’t steam them for very long if you plan to freeze them. They also keep very well for a few days in the fridge, so they’re great to make ahead during once a week prep time. If you’re eating them right away, steam them for several minutes, until they’re the tenderness that your family likes.

Chinese-Style Green Beans

1 lb whole green beans, lightly steamed
1 t canola oil
1 t ginger
1 t ginger
1 clove of garlic, mashed
1 T soy sauce
1/2 t brown sugar
1/2 t sesame oil
crushed red pepper

All of these ingredients can be simply tossed together, or if you’d prefer having a real sauce on the beans, mix 2 T water with the soy sauce and add 1 t cornstarch. Mix with the rest.
