By: Amy Johnson of She Wears Many Hats

This November the food community is joining us in our cause to raise
awareness about diabetes by contributing diabetes-friendly recipes to
ASweetLife. We're very happy Amy Johnson from She Wears Many Hats is
sharing this simple and delicious recipe for sauteed green beans.

My name is Amy from where I blog about a variety
of topics, especially food! I'm happy to join you today here at A Sweet
Life. The recipe below is a favorite go-to recipe because it's quick
and the seasonings can be easily adjusted to complement many dishes.

1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp sesame oil
4 cups green beans, washed dried, ends snapped (~ 12 oz. in weight)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp soy sauce

In a saute pan or skillet, heat the olive oil and sesame oil over
medium-medium high heat.

Add green beans, stir to coat with oil.

Add all other ingredients, stir to coat beans well.

Continue to cook, stirring occasionally for 10-12 minutes. Be careful
not to burn. Green beans should be slightly firm but not crunchy.
