This dish is so simple yet intensely flavorful. Thanks to seasonings and produce that pack a big flavor punch, you don’t have to skimp on the flavor when staying minimal with the amount of ingredients used!
What You’ll Need:
- 2 cups of uncooked white rice (preferably organic — I did not use organic white rice for this recipe, only because I didn’t have any at the time.)
- 2 cups of fresh green beans (can also use frozen, but I prefer fresh for this recipe, especially since there are only a few ingredients– that way you can really taste the freshness of everything– and preferably organic!)
- 1/2 white onion, chopped
- 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce*
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
What to Do:
- Prepare rice in a small saucepan (boil water, add rice, stir and bring to a boil again, turn heat to a low simmer, cover and let simmer for approximately 20 minutes or so– use approximately 1 3/4 cup of water for every one cup of rice).
- Heat a medium-sized skillet on low-medium heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
- Once oil is hot, add green beans and saute for approximately 6-8 minutes.
- Add onions and continue to saute another 4-5 minutes, until green beans and onions are tender and onion is translucent.
- Turn heat to a low simmer and add soy sauce and garlic powder.
- Stir green beans and remove from heat.
- Transfer green beans to a serving dish.
- Add side of white rice to dish and serve. Bon appetit!
* I didn’t use a low-sodium variety because I wanted the full salty flavor from the soy sauce, and didn’t add any additional salt!
