A Passage To India – Part 3: Spicy Green Beans

Filed under: Recipes,Sides,Vegan,Vegetarian,Veggies — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 12:50 pm

In part three of our Indian Night Trifecta, we’ll be tackling the simplest of the three dishes.  This doesn’t even require step-by-step photos, so my obvious lack of coordination in terms of cooking and remembering to take pics at the same time won’t even come into play.

You’ll need:

Green Beans (about a pound), washed and trimmed

Canola or Olive Oil

2 Cloves Garlic, minced (or roughly 1 tsp jarred garlic)

Salt

Red Pepper Flakes

What to do:

In large skillet or wok, heat 1 Tbsp Oil. 

Add garlic and beans, then sprinkle with salt.

Stir Fry for a few minutes over high heat, then  add a bit of liquid (water or broth), reduce heat to medium, and cover.

Let cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender.

Sprinkle with red pepper flakes (to taste), and stir fry for a few more minutes before serving beside your Spicy Lentil Dal and Indian Cauliflower
