Spicy dry fried green beans from Kylie Kwong: recipes and stories
This is such a delicious way to eat your beans and have them too. Kylie says that the this dish “bursts with fragrance and becomes slightly caramelised and nutty” .Yum. Sooo easy and quick, you can whip it up right now with some steamed rice. Then have it again the tomorrow night. It’s addictive ..
. 2 cups vegetable oil for frying
·130 g (a bunch) of green beans
·11/2 tabs of Hoisin sauce
·½ teasp diced garlic
·¼ teasp sea salt
·¼ teasp more vegetable oil (very anal our Kylie with measurements non?)
·2 large red chilies… If you use a knife and fork to slice them in half and remove the seeds you won’t touch the chilies, rub your eyes and then have very attractive red eyes.
·Heat oil in wok. (I know. It’s a shock. You’ve been on a diet and you haven’t fried anything for 10 years but trust me this is very slimming)
·Deep fry the beans (I repeat deep fry!) for 1 to 2 mins till they wilt but are still crunchy ish
·Don’t worry if the beans split a little. Remove from the wok with a slotted spoon and put aside .Yes you may try one
·In a clean wok (pour out the oil into a cup) combine the Hoisin, garlic, salt, vegetable oil, and chilies
·Toss in the beans and stir fry for about 3 mins until they smell delicious and aromatic
Serve with steamed rice and eat just like that. Unadulterated.Simple. Hot.
