Spicy Asparagus and Green Beans
Looking for something quick and easy to toss together as a side for your meal? I always find that beans and asparagus work really well together as they don't take long to cook and they have that textural crunch. I don't mind a little spice, so for me the chilli adds a lot of flavour, but if spicy is not your thing, you can easily prepare this dish without it.
2 bunches asparagus, trimmed
300g green beans, top and tailed
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 garlic clove, minced
½ teaspoon chili flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Prepare asparagus and beans and set aside.
Heat pan on stove and add oil. Once melted add in garlic and mix for 1 minute so that garlic does not burn or stick to pan.
Add the vegetables, chili and seasoning. Stir fry for 3-5 minutes and then serve.
