Green Beans in Ginger Sauce

In Chinese cooking, Green beans are used in so many different ways, there's much more to this bean than just butter. This dish is unbelievably simple to prepare.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 200g green beans

  • 1 1/2 tbsp minced ginger

  • 1 tbsp Chinkiang vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp stock (water also works)

  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 shallot finely sliced

  • Drizzle Yep Sichuan Chilli Crisp (obviously)


  1. Trim the ends off the beans, cut them in half if your serving plate is not big enough for the full bean.

  2. Finely slice the shallot, heat some oil in a pan and cook the shallots until browned and crispy, then set aside.

  3. Heat a pan of water to the boil and cook the beans for 3-4 minutes, do not overdo. Drain and run under a cool tap for 30 seconds. In a row, stack the beans on a serving plate.

  4. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well, adding the sesame oil last.

  5. Pour the sauce over the stack of beans and garnish with the crispy shallots.
