Spicy Asian Green Beans
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 pound of green beans (stem ends trimmed)
2 teaspoons fresh fine diced ginger
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
3 green onions sliced into 1/8 the inch pieces
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup grape tomatoes (halfed)
1/4 teaspoons Chilli paste
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (toasted)
- Heat a large skillet; add the 2 oils to infuse the flavours. Add the green beans and saute until they begin to look cooked (about 5 minutes).
- Add the ginger, garlic, green onions, soya sauce, sugar and chile paste. Cook for another 2-3 stirring frequently. The garlic will be golden, the sauce will become sticky and coat the beans.
- Add the grape tomatoes for the last minute of cooking time.
- Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds (optional).
