These Chinese Style Green Beans reminds me of home. They are a great side dish. I blanched the green beans first but it’s not really a necessary step if you want to save time. You would just need to sauté them longer. I also typically like adding sliced onions to sauté with green beans but I was out of onions when making this. I served these green beans with rice and aidells’ spicy mango and jalapeño meatballs. I got the meatballs from Costco after tasting a sample – they always get me with the samples at Costco! On a side note its been more difficult keeping up with this blog but I'll try to post as often as I can, life has just been more busy these days. Having a "senior" dog with hypothyroidism and even more separation anxiety is taking a toll on me lately. Any advice on dealing with separation anxiety, mostly constant whining/barking, will be appreciate! Thanks!

In the same pot, over medium high heat, add olive oil and garlic cloves. Add in cooked green beans.
