   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5      teaspoons     Peanut oil or canola oil
   10      milliliters   Garlic -- peeled & minced
    1      teaspoon      Minced gingerroot
    1      pound         Green beans (2 pieces)
    1      teaspoon      Oriental sesame oil
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt (optional)
 
 1. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet.  Add the garlic and ginger, and
 stir-fry the ingredients for 30 seconds.
 
  2. Add the green beans, and stir-fry them over high heat for 2 to 4=
  minutes.
 
  3. Add the sesame oil and salt (if desired), toss the ingredients to coat
 them, and serve the beans.
 
  Preparation tip: The beans are supposed to be tender-crisp and shriveled or
 even charred a bit on the outside.  If you like tenderer beans, cover the
 pan after adding the sesame oil and salt, and continue cooking the beans for
 a few minutes over moderately low heat.
