Spicy Ginger & Garlic Green Beans
1/2 lb fresh Green Beans
2 1/2 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Tsp Fresh Ginger, minced
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
Dry Roasted Peanuts, crushed (for garnish)
Remove the dry vine-end of the green beens. Prepare an ice bath. Bring a medium-sized sauce pan of water to boil with a pinch or two of salt. Add in green beans and boil for about 2 minutes. Drain beans and put into ice bath to cool. In a bowl, whisk together rice wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic, ginger and red pepper flake. Allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Toss green beans in rice wine mixture. When ready to serve, top with crushed peanuts.
Headed out to Riverhead, Long Island in the morning to visit the Garden of Eve Organic Farm, taste some wine and hopefully relax a bit from this busy week. Camera battery is charging!
