Green Beans with Garlic and Ginger – Stir-Fry You Way to Healthy Green Beans
We love serving green beans with garlic and ginger for a healthy side dish for dinner. When you start with frozen green beans, you know you are getting as close to freshly picked beans as possible.
You can use any green beans you like to make this healthy side dish, but we use Birds Eye Steamfresh for taste and convenience. You can actually take them out of your freezer and stir-fry until cooked through without a problem. No need to boil or microwave.
Birds Eye Steamfresh beans are great for taste and convenience.
One cup of green beans is only about 30 calories, so this is a pretty lean bean. You can put leftover green beans on your salad for a filling and tasty addition. Green beans have plenty of fiber so they will keep you fuller longer!
Serve you family this Healthy Green Bean Recipe with lots of Garlic and Ginger.
- 1 (10 oz.) Bag of Frozen Green Beans
- 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons chicken broth
- 2 cloves garlic, minced fine
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 3-4 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Sesame oil
Lightly salt & pepper beans and then add the chicken broth. Let beans cook in broth for about 3 minutes, stirring often.
Move the beans over to make room for the garlic and ginger. Add them both to the skillet with a small amount of olive oil if necessary. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Stir the garlic and ginger in with the beans and sprinkle with soy sauce and Sesame oil. Stir to combine.
Saute the green beans and then push them over to the side of the pan to add the garlic and grated ginger. Add a little additional oil if necessary.
Add a couple teaspoons of soy sauce to enhance the flavors of the garlic and ginger. A little bit goes a long way when you are adding soy sauce. We always use Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce in our recipes.
Always remember in cooking these green beans – less oil is better. You only need a small amount of oil/fat to make these beans healthy & delicious!
