Long beans are from the black-eyde pea family and not actually green beans. This recipe resembles  something you would find in a Chinese restaurant. These beans grow all summer in the hot Austin temperatures unlike your regular bush beans that peter out.

  • 2 cups long beans cut in 2 inch pieces
  • 2 tsps fermented black beans. You can get these in an Asian store.
  • 2 tsp cooking oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil.
  1. Heat oil on medium and add chopped  fermented black beans
  2. cook one minute and add grated ginger and garlic cloves. I grate on a medium microplane.
  3. Immediately add long beans and stir.
  4. Add 1 TBSP of water and cover.
  5. Lower heat and cook for 4 minutes.
  6. Add toasted sesame oil and salt.
  7. Stir and serve.
