Stir Fry Thai Green Beans




I love fresh veggies!   It is amazing the difference in taste of canned green beans and fresh.   Not to mention the difference of sodium levels.  I can make these green beans in about the same amount of time required to heat a can of green beans.   





Stir Fry Thai Green Beans
(serves 3)

3 Cups of fresh Green Beans (about a handful per person)
2-3 dried Thai red Chiles
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste





Heat the olive oil in a wok or large skillet. Add the crushed Thai Chiles and  green beans and stir fry until almost done (about 5-6 minutes), add the crushed garlic and stir fry for 1-2 minutes longer.    Salt and pepper to taste.   Serve with Turkey Meatloaf and Lighter Mashed Potatoes.

  13. Evelyn that's a great recipe. I'm from the south where historically we boiled green beans until soft with some kind of pork. This recipe sounds so delicious and healthy- and fast! I Can't wait to try it.
