i scaled this way back for 2 of us as one of the sides with Five Spice Lamb Shank With Tamarind and Ginger and used 125grams for 2 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed, I as the cook especially the simplicity of the recipe. Unfortunately I had to use dried parsley as my fresh from the garden was killed of while we were on holidays. Thank you Sydney Mike, made for Everyday A Holiday.

A light, flavorful side dish. I much prefer these green beans over those heavy, soupy casseroles! We really enjoyed. Thanks for posting!
