  • Summary

    We blanch the beans before sauteing. This means to plunge fresh green beans into boiling salted water, leave for 1 to 2 minutes, and then plunge into icy water to stop the cooking. This makes them crisp and bright green. You can blanch the beans, cool, and drain them a day in advance. Just keep them covered in the refrigerator.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, stem ends trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 (2-inch-long) piece fresh ginger
    • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
