       Title: GREEN BEANS WITH WATER CHESTNUTS
  Categories: Vegetables, Low-cal
       Yield: 4 servings
  
      12 oz Fresh green beans
     1/2 c  Chicken broth
       1 ts Finely chopped ginger root
       1 sm Clove garlic, finely chopped
     1/3 c  Thin sliced water chestnuts
       1 ts Soy sauce
            Freshly ground pepper
  
   Slice the green beans and water chestnuts ahead of
   time, but cook just before meal time.  Serve
   tender-crisp and piping hot.  Thin, fresh asparagus
   spears can be substituted for green beans.
   
   Wash and drain green beans.  French-cut in half
   lengthwise; set aside. Combine chicken broth, ginger
   root and garlic in a frypan; bring to a boil. Add
   green beans and water chestnuts.  Sprinkle with soy
   sauce. Cover tightly and steam 7 to 8 min until
   tender-crisp.  If moisture has not dried off, remove
   cover, raise heat briefly and shake pan to evaporate
   remaining liquid.  Season to taste with pepper.
