Asian Green Beans


Sometimes the simplest thing are the best.

Like this recipe, simple, fresh and easy to make.

Web Wednesdays are fun because all I'm doing is googling three ingredients I have in my fridge/pantry and attaching vegan and recipe to them. I look through the results to find something that appeals to me and make it.

This time around I included green beans, rice and ginger. Asian green beans sounded the best and the simplest to make. 20 minutes later dinner was served!
