“HOT and spicy green beans! Yummy for people that like heat on the side. I think you could add a meat like shrimp or chicken to this to make it a main dish if you like.”

Directions

  1. Puree the garlic, bird's eye chile, lemon grass, fish sauce, and coconut milk in a blender until smooth; set aside. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans, and cook for 2 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat the peanut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the green onions. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes until the green onions have softened and begun to brown. Stir in the pureed sauce, and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the green beans. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer the green beans until tender, about 5 minutes.

I cooked the green beans a little longer (about 5 minutes) in the sauce to really soak up the Thai flavor. It's great side dish to serve over steamed rice and to go with grill fish or chicken.

I didn't have a bird's eye chili or lemon grass, so I used this recipe as an inspiration, and it turned out really well. I am sure it would be great made as is too. I subbed lime juice for the lemon grass and I subbed homemade hot sauce for the chile. I didn't bother with the blender step, and I used organic green beans that I had frozen over the summer and since I had blanched them then, I skipped that step in the recipe and just put the frozen beans in the sauce after it had simmered down. The beans turned out a little more done than I would have liked, but they were still really good. I'm sure it would be even better made with fresh beans, but this is a nice and flexible recipe.
