green beans asian-style

First, Happy St. Patrick’s Day, second, poor green beans – they’ve been singled out as the one to shun, the one to leave behind, the one to yell at, the one to avoid at all costs – why? I have a theory. When vegetables are cooked beyond recognition, slathered in cloying sauces and left for dead, well, they do lose a touch of appeal. A crisp, fresh, gorgeously green, green bean is a thing to behold.

The green bean’s time has come thanks to soy sauce, garlic and blue agave – after a quick trip over high heat, douse your beans with these heavenly asian-inspired flavours and you’ll be more than happy to eat your beans, and everyone else’s too!
