Spicy Green Beans

Spicy Green Beans

I needed to make a veggie for dinner and I found green beans in the fridge.  I wanted the beans to pair nicely with the chicken I was baking and the Sesame Noodles with Sautéed Shiitake Mushrooms and Kale so I decided to sauté them with a little butter, soy, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, ginger, and white pepper.  They turned out really spicy but we all liked the kick from the crushed red pepper flakes and loved the flavor from the soy butter. These beans disappeared quickly so it looks like I’ll be making them again.

Spicy Green Beans

Heat the butter and crushed red pepper flakes in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add the washed and trimmed green beans (or haricot verts) to the pan then season with white pepper and ground ginger, to taste. Cover with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes or until fork tender. Add the minced garlic and soy sauce and cook for 2-3 minutes. I made thin haricot verts but if you use bigger green beans then add more cooking time. Side Note: Add a tablespoon or two of water if the pan is dry. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
