- 1 1/2 pounds fresh green beans
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh minced or shredded ginger (can use ginger from a jar, tube, or grate it yourself)
- 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/3 cup chicken broth
- salt and pepper to taste
Blanch green beans about 5 minutes in a pot of water or until they are cooked to desired level of tenderness. Remove beans from heat. Pour off excess water. Heat olive oil in a second pan. Saute´ garlic and ginger about 3 minutes. Add chicken broth and cook over medium heat another 2 minutes. Pour over green beans and stir until well coated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If you only want to use one pan, steam green beans in the microwave instead of in a separate pan.
