I don't buy fresh green beans that often, but saw some really nice ones at the market. This was a great way to prepare them. I love that they got that nice shrivelled look that they are supposed to have without the usual work it takes to get them that way. I chopped/grated the onion, garlic and ginger by hand and that worked perfectly well. Nice to be able to do this in the micro while using the stove for other things.
