Crunchy green beans taste wonderful in a rich, nutty coating of walnuts and lots of garlic and ginger.
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil (or see note)
  • 1½ pounds green beans, trimmed (use frozen whole organic green beans if fresh are unavailable)
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 5 to 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger, or more, to taste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari, to taste
  • Dried hot red pepper flakes, sriracha, or other hot seasoning, to taste
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil plus 2 tablespoons of water in an extra-large skillet or stir-fry pan. Stir in the green beans and stir-fry over medium-high heat until bright green.
  2. Add the red bell pepper, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and walnuts. Continue to stir-fry until the green beans are tender-crisp and touched with dark brown spots.
  3. Remove from the heat and leave in the pan, or transfer to a serving container. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Note:
To make this extra-spicy, use chili oil in place of sesame oil.
