Green Beans

I experimented yesterday with green beans.  Not sure if you might have picked up on this, but I absolutely dislike "plain" foods.  Everything I eat, I like flavored.  If someone else makes dinner and does rice plain, I have to put some kind of sauce on it, (soy, bbq, plum)......same with most of my vegetables, too many years of plain or overcooked veggies.

about a cup and a half green beans, topped and tailed

Steam the green beans lightly, so they are still crisp.

Mix 1/4 cup soy sauce with 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp diced ginger and 1 tbsp diced fresh garlic.

Pour over the beans and stir.  They were even better after sitting in the mix for 20 minutes.
