Garlicky Haricot Verts

A friend of mine recently suggested Haricot Verts to me as a possible addition to my new veggie list and today they attained New Veggie #48 status.  

Garlicky Haricot Verts
Prep Time: 10 min

  1. 1 lb fresh Haricots, whole, rinsed
  2. 1/8 cup Vegetable broth
  3. 1 tbsp minced Garlic
  4. 2 tbsp Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  5. 1 tbsp Vegetarian Oyster Sauce
  6. Salt & Pepper, to taste

Line a skillet with 1/8 cut water or vegetable broth and add soy sauce and garlic. Once the garlic is fragrant, add haricots, give it a quick toss and cover. Reduce heat to medium and cook until tender. Then add oyster sauce, give it another quick toss and cook uncovered until all the liquid has evaporated. Garnish with freshly cracked black pepper, and add salt to taste, if needed. 

My Assessment: I liked these a lot, as did Tony and Alex ... Nik not so much today. Between the 3 of us we finished every last bean. The garlic added a ton of flavor and the Oyster sauce added a touch of sweetness. They were great. Alongside these french beans, Tony and I enjoyed a  poor man's dinner  ... Mixed Vegetable Ramen - which is basically, a pack of Ramen noodles, cooked without the seasoning that came with the packet, but with a ton of veggies and some soy sauce and whatever Asian seasoning/sauce we feel like (today I used Thai Peanut Sauce).
