    Healthy, simple and tasty making these beans an agreeable side. I made using frozen beans as that is what was on hand and chopped the onion before I saw the recipe said slice but other than that no changes. We thought the mustard seed and fresh ginger made a wonderful combo. Thanks for the post.

    I really enjoyed the mild mustard seed and ginger flavors in the beans. Thanks for a different way to enjoy veggies! Made for ZWT 2012 by a Herbaceous Curvaceous Honey.
