Simple green beans never tasted so good. This dish offers a great way to get some green vegetables into your family members' diets.

What you'll need

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. black or yellow mustard seeds, available in the bulk herb section of most health-food stores
  • 1/2 cube(s) of peeled ginger, sliced julienne thin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 lb green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. tumeric
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 med lemon with juice squeezed out (keep the juice, throw away the lemon)


  • Step 1
    Saute mustard seeds and ginger in olive oil over moderate heat until mustard seeds begin to pop.
  • Step 2
    Add the beans and stir-fry over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add the water, cover tightly, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Step 3
