Big green beans with spring onions and onion oil.
- 1 KG big green beans, like this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vicia_faba
- a bunch of spring onions, like 5-6 of them
- 4-6 Tablespoons of peanut oil
- some salt and pepper, if wanted, some chili (powder, flakes..)
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
Over here you can buy the beans in a glass, around 450-500g, where they are filled in and preserved with water.
Clean the spring onions, cut off most of the green parts and the roots, cut them into small slices.
Heat 4 or 5 tablespoons of the peanut oil in a small pot, and, when it is hot, add the sliced spring onions and step away from the cooker, because the still wet spring onions will stir up the hot oil inside the pot.
Turn down temperature, let it cook for 1 minute, then remove it from the stove.
That is your home made spring onion oil now.
Put your Wok, pan, or even pot on the stove, add 1-2 Tablespoons of peanut oil, let it heat up, then add the beans (without the liquid, of course).
Keep them in motion with a wooden spoon, don't let them burn, and do that for 3-5 minutes.
Then add some salt and pepper, up to what you want, even chili, if needed, and 1/2 ts of sugar. Add like a cup of water too, reduce heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
After that, add the spring onion oil, including the spring onions, stir and let it cook for one or two minutes again.
When done, serve and eat it with no additions like rice or bread or whatever.
Simple and yummy, isn't it? :)
