Very easy to make, and just delicious! I used less honey, about 1/2 cup, and a bit more of the ginger and garlic, and it still came out great. Something different to make with green beans, it's worth a try!

Oh this was just a lovely dish. The ginger,soy sauce, honey and garlic all work well together giving the green beans an extra special flavor that just pops out loud. I only had a 1/2 cup of honey and it was still just perfect. Again and again I will make this recipe and this dish will show up at many holiday dinners. Yummy. Thank you so much for sharing.

I am not sure that soya sayce is a good choice for a green vegetable. It resulted in mottling the color of the beans which I often rely upon for a bit of colour on a plate. I reduced the honey and doubled the ginger and garlic as indicated in the reviews. Flavour was ok.
