  1. Line up the green beans in bunches and cut them in half crossways.
  2. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil, then add the beans and a pinch of salt and return to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 minutes, or until the beans are tender.
  3. Place the garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sugar in a serving bowl and stir them together until the sugar has dissolved. Drain the beans, toss them into the dressing, then serve.
  4. Variation: substitute sliced carrots, runner beans or baby corn cobs, adjusting the cooking time in Step 2 until they are tender.
