Mmmm.. here we go again guys! 

Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner (omgomgomgomg) let's talk sides. Green beans are such a wonderful veggie when you think about it.. yes. Think about it. You can eat them raw AND cooked. Plus, they are super healthy (as I'm reading this website)! 

When I'm not making an asian stir-fry out of them I also use them to make spicy salads or just plain steam them then drizzle some oyster sauce on them. 

The recipe I have tonight is an easy gingery & slightly spicy one. I kinda just love the word "blistered" so hence the title. Give e'r a go!

Ingredients:
1lb Green Beans trimmed on both ends
1 round of Ginger cubed
1 tbsp Szechuan peppercorns muddled
1 tbsp Braggs Liquid Aminos (or Soy Sauce!)
Sprinkle of Sesame Seeds
Veggie/ Canola/ Olive oil 




Directions:

1. Heat up a wok, cast iron skillet or a plain ol' pan to medium to high heat.
2. Add a few swirls of oil & toss in your green beans.
3. After you see some blistering/ charring add your ginger & szechuan peppercorns.
4. In about 1-2 minutes you should notice the intoxicating aromas! Smell & enjoy.
5. Drizzle a few dashes of your Bragg's or soy sauce. 
6. Sprinkle sesame seeds over & char the beans up some more. You are dunzo!





Simple, right?! If you want your green beans to be spicier throw in some chili oil. Serve with steamed white rice, some Laos Sausages & baked tamarind salmon- dinner is served!
