- 450g/1lb Fresh Green Beans
- 2 tbsp Black Bean PASTE
- 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
- 60ml/2fl.oz. Cold Water
- 1 tbsp Cornflour
1. Wash the beans and cut into 2.5cm/1 inch pieces. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil, add the beans and cook for 3-4 minutes. They should still be quite crisp. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the black bean paste, soy sauce, water and cornflour until very smooth.
3. Heat a large saucepan over a medium heat until hot then add a little water and the cooked beans and cook for 2-3 minutes then add the sauce, stirring constantly to coat the beans (sauce will get very thick). Serve immediately.
