Spicy Garlic and Ginger Green Beans


12 oz green beans

1 onion – sliced

1 TBS (more or less – to taste) crushed red pepper

Splash of soy sauce

1-2 TBS coconut oil (or olive oil)

4 garlic cloves – minced

1 TBS ginger – minced

Sesame seeds as garnish

In a very large saute pan (or wok) – heat the oil on high heat.  Add the onions, green beans & crushed red pepper.  Stir & cook until the green beans are cooked to your desired softness.  I like them a bit crunchy & probably cooked them for between 5-8 minutes.  At the very end, add the minced garlic & ginger & stir to incorporate.  Cook for maybe a minute or two.  Garnish with sesame seeds & eat it as a side or over rice.  Ymmmmmmm!
