  • 1 pound green beans
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger finely minced or grated (from peeled ginger root, about 1-1/2 inch knob of ginger root)
  • 6 garlic cloves sliced vertically in half
  • 1/2 cup onions diced or sliced into short strips
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add green beans and blanch for 5 to 7 minutes, allowing to boil until bright green and tender-crisp. How to test: Bean should snap easily in half, but be tender to eat. Drain the green beans.
  • Meanwhile, add oil to a sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions, ginger, and garlic. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes until onions have softened and are a bit translucent. Add turmeric and two tablespoons of water and stir together to form a paste. Add green beans and toss. Add an additional tablespoon or two of water and cook, tossing constantly until all ingredients are coated.
  • Enjoy!
