  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder

1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add generous amount of salt and add green beans. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat for about 2 minutes. You want it to get pretty hot by itself. Add oil and coat the pan. Add the green beans and saute for about 2-4 minutes, or until they start to brown.

3. Make a well in the center of the skillet and add garlic, ginger powder, and red pepper flakes. Slowly start to incorporate the green beans, until everything is well mixed.
