This is a quick vegetable side that’s great in a hurry. Inspired by Russ Crandall’s Green Bean Recipe

Green Beans are one of the first foods to attempt reintroducing in AIP.

1 tablespoon lard, tallow, or refined coconut oil
green beans trimmed
Tamari (or Coconut-Aminos for Autoimmune Paleo)
Mirin or Sherry
black pepper to taste
salt to taste
optional green chili paste fried to taste (omit for AIP)
optional ginger paste about ½ teaspoon per pound green beans
optional ¼ teaspoon dried turmeric powder per pound of green beans

Heat the fat over medium-high heat and then stir fry green beans until medium green usually 2-5 min depending on thickness. If using frozen green beans may take 12-15 minutes.

Add 1 Tablespoon per pound of green beans EACH Tamari AND Mirin (sherry may be substituted), turmeric, and black pepper.

Fry the garlic scapes or garlic cloves about 4-6 cloves until it’s golden (if cloves) about 30 seconds. For garlic scapes you can fry longer about 2-3 min or 5-6 min if frozen.
Fry the ginger and/or chili paste about 2-3 minutes.
