Easy Goddess Green Beans

This recipe was adapted from my Godmother, Sondra. It is so simple to prepare and yet extremely complex in flavor. I strongly suggest dressing up your next batch of green beans with the following recipe.

I am being pretty imprecise with measurements because it all varies based on the size of batch you are making and what strength of seasonings suits your individual palate. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Easy Goddess Green Beans

1 bunch of fresh green beans (ends trimmed)
Splash of olive or canola oil
Splash of tamari or soy sauce
1 1/2 inch nub of finely grated fresh ginger
1-2 cloves finely grated fresh garlic
Water (for steaming beans)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Splash of Agave syrup (optional, I usually don't add this but it does make it more appealing to kids and picky spouses, when you do) :)

Steam green beans in an inch or two of salted water just until fork tender (should be a tad bit crunchy). Transfer beans to a collander and run cold water over them to stop cooking process.

Return beans to the warm pan you used to steam them and toss with oil, tamari, garlic, ginger and agave. Taste and add salt and pepper to your liking.

Can be served warm or at room temperature. They get tastier as they hang out and all the flavors marry one another. A real crowd pleaser for a potluck party. Enjoy!
