      Title: Green beans with water chestnuts
 Categories: Vegetables, Low-cal, Diabetic, Canadian
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
     12 oz Fresh green beans
    1/2 c  Chicken broth
      1 ts Finely chopped ginger root
      1 sm Clove garlic, finely chopped
    1/3 c  Thin sliced water chestnuts
      1 ts Soy sauce
           Freshly ground pepper
 
  Slice the green beans and water chestnuts ahead of time, but cook just
  before meal time.  Serve tender-crisp and piping hot.  Thin, fresh
  asparagus spears can be substituted for green beans.
  
  Wash and drain green beans.  French-cut in half lengthwise; set aside.
  Combine chicken broth, ginger root and garlic in a frypan; bring to a
  boil. Add green beans and water chestnuts.  Sprinkle with soy sauce.
  Cover tightly and steam 7 to 8 min until tender-crisp.  If moisture
  has not dried off, remove cover, raise heat briefly and shake pan to
  evaporate remaining liquid.  Season to taste with pepper.
