Stir Fried Green Beans and Walnuts
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half on diagonal
1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil            
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup dry sherry, white wine, chicken broth OR water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Heat oil in wok or deep heavy skillet over medium high heat. Stir fry ginger and garlic for 30 seconds. Toss in beans and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes until they are bright green and just tender crisp. Sprinkle with sherry, cover and steam 1 minute. Toss with walnuts and serve immediately. Serves 6.
Ok, I'll admit I posted this recipe because I had a picture I took of green beans. Don't have a big library of photos yet. Will take some time now that I've learned to use the digital camera. Stir frying seasonal fresh vegetables is a favorite method of preparation. Stir fried vegetables don't have to have Asian style seasonings. Omit the ginger at the beginning and add minced fresh herbs at the end and you have whole different dish.

Great, CJ! I never think to stir fry fresh produce for a quick side dish. I did get your message, thanks!

I agree CJ - and congrats on spotting something that both hadn't been said and needed to be said. Fresh produce, prepared quick and easy is so good - both to taste and also good for YOU!

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
