  • 1 pound green beans ends trimmed and patted dry
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil divided
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp ginger minced
  1. Heat a wok on medium-high.

  2. While the wok is heating, mix up the sauce, and set aside. Place a paper towel or newspaper on a plate, set aside.

  3. Add 2 tsp of oil to the wok, and swirl around to coat the surface. Once the oil is smoking, add the green beans, and stir them constantly to keep them from burning. Cook for five minutes until they're blistered and bright green.

  4. Remove them from the wok and place them on the paper towel lined plate.

  5. Add the other tsp of oil to the now-empty wok, and swirl to coat. Add the garlic and ginger, and stir constantly for about 30 seconds.

  6. Add the liquids, and add the beans back to the sauce/ginger/garlic mixture, and stir for another minute. Throw the green onions on top and serve!
