    1. Line up the green beans in bunches and cut them in half crossways.

    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.
