I bought a big bulk of green beans on the farmer's market today, so GREEEEEEEEEEEN!
This is what I did to them:
Cook them in plain water for 10-15 min till tender (do not throw them in before water is boiling). Sautee 2 cloves garlic in olive oil for three minutes, then add sea salt, black pepper and some cumin seeds. Add cooked and rinsed beans and drizzle with 2 tbsp each of soy sauce and white vine. let cook for another 3-4 minutes until beans are slightly browned.
Serve them with peanutbuttered bread for a quick lunch, or with Caulipots from Veganomicon, or with a yummy jacket potatoe. I also used this recipe as a base for a thai style stir-fry with red peppers, brown rice, white radish, peanuts, broccoli, coconut milk and red curry paste.
Be creative, and let me know :)
