Chinese Style Green Beans


1 pound green beans (I used french green beans.)

1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil (You may also use vegetable or sesame oil.)

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon agave (You may use sugar or honey as your sweetner.)

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

2 teaspoons soy sauce (I used light soy.) 


Bring a large pot of water to boiling.  Add green beans.  Cook for about 3 minutes and drain.

In the same pot, over medium high heat, add olive oil and garlic cloves.  Add in cooked green beans.

Stir in agave, oyster sauce and soy sauce.

Saute for about 5 to 7 minutes, until green beans are tender.

Serves 4 o 6.
