Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dark sesame oil or see note
  • 1 pounds green beans trimmed (use frozen whole green beans if fresh are unavailable)
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper finely diced
  • 5 to 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger or more, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari to taste
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • Dried hot red pepper flakes sriracha, or other hot seasoning, to taste

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add the hot seasoning to taste, taking into account your guest’s preferences. You can always pass more around for those who’d like more spice.
  • Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature with cocktail toothpicks.


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