Health plus Taste is a wonderful combination to get in one dish!
2 scallions, sliced
Onions Green (Scallions)/ Spring 2 lb
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
5 tablespoons grape-seed oil
1 pound green beans, trimmed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
3 tablespoons toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
Combine scallions and ginger in a small heatproof bowl. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, until shimmering.
Carefully spoon 3 tablespoons of the oil into the bowl. Add beans to the remaining oil in the pan and cook, without stirring, until starting to blister, about 2 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about 5 minutes more. Serve topped with the scallion-ginger oil, coconut and sesame seeds.
