Walnuts

Tired of sautéed green beans with pearl onions? Here’s a quick and easy side dish from chef Anita Lo with an Asian-inspired twist.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 bunch long beans or green beans, trimmed and cut
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces, toasted
  • Pepper, to taste

Directions

Heat the oil in a sauce pan to 350 degrees (use a deep-fat thermometer to check the temperature). Add the beans and fry approximately 1 minute until shriveled. (Stand back, as the beans have a good deal of moisture and will splatter.) Strain and toss immediately with the hoisin and garlic. Scatter the toasted walnut pieces on top, and season with pepper, to taste.
