About the recipe

snacks and sides

This is a great way to cook fresh French beans. When you buy them, snap them in half and if they make a crunchy snap, you know the beans are fresh and at there best because they are not dried but full of moisture and goodness. This dish may seem like a lot of ingredients but most are seasonings from the store cupboard, just toss the beans in hot oil with ginger, Sichuan pepper, chillies and layers of seasoning and the dish is ready in minutes. This is a mini side dish that you would add as an accompaniment to rice and other dishes, it is a spicy chilli oil dish with tonnes of flavour.
