Green Beans Have World Wide Appeal!

Asian cooks add spices like garlic, ginger, scallions, chili paste and soy sauce to green beans.

Greek green beans are simmered with onions, tomatoes, garlic and oregano until soft.

Italian recipes for green beans are very similar to the Greek recipes. They call for stewed tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil and parmesan cheese.

French love fresh young green beans. They call them "haricot verts" and cook them gently, using white wine, mushrooms, pearl onions and garlic. Some French recipes call for nothing more than the addition of fresh lemon and parsley.

When you start off with the perfect ingredient less is actually more.
