    mishelle's Note:

    I love this green bean recipe and it is only 1 point per serving! I don't like my green beans crunchy so I leave them boiling until they are soft.

      These are terrific! I found they were perfectly crisp-tender after boiling for 6 minutes. I added 1 teaspoon of fresh minced gingeroot along with the garlic and sauteed it in a bit of canola oil instead of using no stick spray. I added in some crushed red pepper flakes and we used some red chile paste( like Sambal Oelek) to add on top of the beans when they were done. I think these type of beans are so good with some heat to them-I can't stop eating them. Although they didn't taste exactly like the ones I get from my Chinese take-out place, they were still excellent and I will be making these many more times.I could make a meal out of these mixed with steamed white rice and chile sauce-I crave them! Thanks for the great recipe!
