    The best green bean recipe ever. I used tamari instead of regular soy sauce and it was just heavenly. We couldn't get enough of it. Thank you.

    Well this has to get 5* if it gets my DM to eat greens for me it was way to salty but I may have been at fault as there is no way I used the amount of beans suggested (sorry did not weigh what I used) but used the full amount of the sauce, I steamed the beans for 5 minutes and then cooked them in the sauce. The DS ate all his up with gusto but I found mine too salty and offered them to the DM (I have not known her in the 6 years she has been living with us it has been a huge struggle getting her to eat green vegetables) when I offered her these she first turned up her nose but when I mentioned they were too salty for me she tasted and devoured what I gave her and what I couldn't eat. So that said (sorry to be so long winded) next time I will make with low sodium soy and in better proportion to the amount of beans I am making. Would also consider using with other green vegetables such as bok choy and asparagus which we like. Thank you Julia Lynn, made for Iron Chef - and the Secret Ingredient is ..... UPDATE have since made with low sodium soy and cut back on the amount and loved it and have also used it for asparagus - sensational.

Just a college student trying to feed myself right! If I do say so myself, I might be catching up to my mom. She makes such WONDERFUL food but never ever wrote a recipe in her life. Growing up.. mom worked so hard (still does) and just didnt have time to show me how to cook. So I try to find recipes to recreate what I remember loving when I lived with them. I call her to ask how to make something and she says "well you know some of this, a little of that.." Oh mommmmm. :) She now frequently gives me the cooking reigns and I am honored. Would NOT be possible without all of the fantastic recipes on RecipeZaar! I attend UNCW here in Wilmington, NC. I hope to teach 5th grade one day soon! Cooking is so much fun to me I could spend hours looking for new recipes My boyfriend supports my habit as well, haha. I wish I had more recipes to post that are original but as I said before.. I don't have very many. I am trying to experiment and come up with my own "style." I have gotten to be an expert grocery shopper! It's probably in my top 3 favorite things to do! Hah! <img src="">
