Teriyaki Green Beans
One of my favorite recipes.
Fresh green beans, stems removed
Juice of ½ lemon
Honey Ginger Teriyaki Sauce
Pinch of sugar (optional)
Red onion, sliced very thin
Cilantro or Italian parsley
Boil the green beans like pasta in salted water for four minutes. Drain immediately and plunge into ice water to fully cool, keeping them there for several minutes.
Drain again and let fully dry on paper towels, patting them lightly if desired.
Toss green beans with Honey Ginger Teriyaki Sauce, adding lemon juice and a little sugar for extra sweetness if you like. Very thin slices of red onion, cut into small pieces, make a great addition, as does a bit of chopped cilantro or Italian parsley.
Serve cold or at room temperature. To serve hot, lightly stir-fry the beans in a small amount of corn or peanut oil instead of boiling them... and prepare as above (excluding the lemon juice).
