 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6                    Garlic cloves, peeled
    2                    Quarter-sized slices ginger
    2                    Scallions, cut in 2 lengths
    1       tb           Vegetable oil
    1       t            Hot red-pepper flakes
    1       tb           Soy sauce
    1       tb           Rice wine vinegar
    1       lb           Green beans, tipped/tailed
 
   Peel garlic and ginger.  Smash garlic.  Trim scallions
   and cut into 2 lengths (don't be fancy, the next step
   is a food processor). Place garlic, ginger, and
   scallions into a food processor and process until
   finely chopped.  Remove to a 14x11x2 dish.  Add oil
   and pepper flakes.  Cook in microwave, uncovered, at
   100% for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in
   remaining ingredients, tossing gently to coat green
   beans.  Cook, uncovered, at 100% for 10-15 minutes,
   stirring 4-5 times.
   Serve hot or cold.
