Introduction

This recipe is to replace the green beans you get at most/all Chinese Buffets including Panda Express and many others. They are a hit with everyone, every time I make them... even my picky picky picky people that I have to feed!

[EDIT: After noticing everyone commenting on the sodium, I realized that I didn't add the 'lite' soy sauce that I use - I had added regular! Fixed it now :) ]

    home made vegetables with 800 mg sodium just do not fit into my nutrition plans. I might make them for company, but I could not enjoy them myself. - 11/4/09

    Thank you for commenting. I actually had the wrong soy sauce in my ingredient list - I ONLY use 'Lite' soy - reduces sodium by half!

    Very good - I tweeked it a bit - better to tweek than complain. I added mushrooms, garlic,onion to the red pepper and ginger. Didn't have coconut oil so used my fav basil evo. Turned out great! Thanks.

    Sodium seemed awfully high for green beans until I looked at the nutritional breakdown and saw the soy sauce that wasn't metioned in the recipe itself. It sounds good, but I'll probably pass this one by. - 11/4/09

    Thank you for commenting. I had the wrong kind of soy in my ingredient list - I ONLY use "lite" soy sauce which reduces the sodium by half!! :-o
