1 large package of trimmed green beans, cut into 2" strips
1 bunch of asparagus, cut into 2" pieces (discard the too-chewy very bottom ends, though)
3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil (such as grapeseed, peanut, canola or even olive oil, depending on what you have / your taste)
Steam or blanche the vegetable for about 4 minutes, or until bendy but still quite crunchy.
Heat oil in skillet and add vegetables with garlic and ginger. Season with salt and pepper and stir over high heat for another 4 minutes or so, until greens get a nice charr (but do not burn!)
Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds or chopped fresh scallions, if you wish, and serve with your choice of protein and / or grains.
