Thanksgiving Dinner - Green Beans

You take a perfectly healthy vegetable; load it with fat and turn it into an unhealthy dish. Alton Brown said something close to this on one of his shows on green bean casserole and I totally agree with his comment. Here is my recipe inspired from a time when I was addicted to Chinese buffets.

Green Bean Recipe

Wash the beans and trim the ends.

Boil water in a large pan and blanch the beans. Once cooked, move the beans to cold water with ice to stop cooking and to preserve the green color.

Chop an onion, ginger and a few cloves of garlic. Sautee it with store bought chilli-garlic sauce and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Mix the beans and switch off. Right before serving, heat the oven to 350 degrees and warm the beans for 15 minutes.
