How Has Your Grocery Shopping Changed?

Every Wednesday, Bon Appétit executive editor Sonia Chopra shares what’s going on at BA—the stories she’s loved reading, the recipes she’s been making, and more. If you sign up for our newsletter , you’ll get her letter before everyone else. Here’s a fun thing about my job: Every so often, I get to test recipes before they go live on our websites or into the pages of the magazine. It’s standard practice at publications like Bon Appétit and Epicurious to have multiple editors cook through recipes before they are published to make sure they will work for, well, people like me: cooking enthusiasts who are not necessarily trained kitchen experts. The first time I volunteered, I was totally in my head about it, afraid I didn’t have the chops to be useful and that I was wasting our food team’s time. But now I like to take on a recipe once a month or so, especially when it sounds particularly delicious (most do!) or will push me to try something new. For example, I don’t fry a lot of thing

How To Recipe A Chinese Green Beans

How To Recipe A Chinese Green Beans

We all love those delicious green beans that we get in the Chinese restaurant. 

The secret is the sesame oil in many cases, and you can make the same thing at home in a really short time. Using gluten free soy sauce, sesame oil and a few other ingredients, you can get all the taste that you want and absolutely none of the gluten that might be found in a restaurant offering. 

Try out this recipe for Chinese green beans and you may never have to find them at the restaurant again.

You will need:

  • 1 pkg frozen green beans , one pound
  • 1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 can gluten free chicken broth
  • 1 bunch green onions, about six
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

To make:

In a 2-quart casserole dish, combine green beans and broth.

 Cover and microwave 4 minutes on high.

 Make sure that your dish is microwave safe and remove it with an oven mitt.

Meanwhile, chop the onion and mince garlic.

Into a small bowl, put the ginger, soy sauce and sugar.

Add scallion rings and garlic. Set aside. 

Remove green beans from microwave  and uncover.

Pour sauce over beans and stir.

Add to the microwave again for approximately 3 minutes. 

Remove and ensure they are heated through. 

Stir in the sesame oil and serve immediately.
