Okay that last picture is way too close.

Bush green beans are probably the easiest vegetable to grow, so I am always looking for good recipes to use them up.

This is one of our favorites, adapted from Taste of Home:

You will need:

-1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed

-1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

-1 tablespoon soy sauce

-2 large garlic cloves, pressed

-1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)

-1 teaspoon brown sugar

-1 teaspoon peanut butter

 

Directions:

  1.  Combine the soy sauce, garlic, sesame seeds, sugar and peanut butter in a small bowl and set aside
  2. Heat a large pan over medium and add the oil.  Stir fry until green beans turn green but are still crisp.
  3. Add the sauce mixture, tossing to coat.  Turn off the heat and cover the pan to allow the beans to soften slightly.  They will be ready in about 2-4 minutes, depending on how tender you want them to be.

This recipe reheats well.
