Chinese Stir Fried Green Beans

Adam and I used to frequently go to a restaurant in China Town that we adored.  Unfortunately we never manage to get there anymore.  I don't know if there is much the girls would eat and frankly, we just don't go out for dinner much.

One of our favorite dishes was their stir-fried green beans.  They were crazy good.  Any time we went there we ordered them and any friends we brought along always agreed with us that they were special.  Vegetables they may have been, but they were without doubt not the healthiest: oily, salty and, admittedly very delicious.  I remade them here trying to keep the fat and salt content least compared to the restaurant version.  Given how simple and easy these are to make, and, of course, how delicious, you gotta try these.

Chinese Stir Fried Green Beans

1 lb fresh or frozen green beans
2 tbls low sodium soy sauce/tamari/coconut aminos
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
Crushed red chilis, to taste
Additional salt, to taste

Whisk together soy, oil and seasonings.  Add beans and sauce to a hot skillet or wok and stir fry until beans are tender crisp.
