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.
