“I really enjoy Thai food. This recipe is so easy and flavorful. In the Thai dishes I've eaten green beans are usually served very crisp. I generally don't leave mine crisp but in Thai cooking it just seems to work. I use this recipe to use up leftover vegetables too; steamed broccoli is a great addition.”
