Spicy Thai Green Beans

I LOVE green beans. I think they are fantastic raw, cooked, plain or seasoned. This recipe has quickly become one of my favorite ways to enjoy them though. It is a fantastic side dish especially to Asian style noodles. You could mix it in to a noodle dish to bulk it up or give it a new twist as well. Don’t worry- they are not too spicy. You can always adjust the amount of red pepper to up the heat if you’d like.

Spicy Thai Green Beans (2 full servings)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp curry powder
1 tsp Sriracha
400 grams green beans (i’ve used frozen and fresh, both came out great. I’m sure canned works also)

Mix together soy sauce, water, spices and Sriracha. Coat the green beans. Cook in a large pan until they reach your desired tenderness or until heated through.

    I admire you being such a healthy cook!!! Where do I buy sriracha and would you by chance know how many cups 400 grams of green beans is? I might try your recipe when I am off the liquid fast. By the way, I have lost 40 pounds since last October. 22 pounds of it since this July on the liquid protein fast. Miss you lots and can’t wait to see you when you come home next summer. Hugs and Luv. Gigi.

      You can buy Sriracha at most grocery stores, it has gotten quite popular. It might be with Asian foods. If not, try an Asian supermarket. 400 grams would be about 14 oz. That’s great- good luck with the rest of the fast. I’m very excited to see you again too!
