  • Fresh green beans, trimmed
  • High-quality Red Palm Oil from Palm Done Right
  • Szechuan peppercorns, lightly crushed
  • Fresh garlic, minced
  • Soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • A pinch of sugar (optional)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, for that extra heat (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Blanch the green beans in boiling water for a few minutes until bright green but still crisp. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat a generous amount of Red Palm Oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the Szechuan peppercorns and garlic, sautéing until aromatic.
  3. Increase the heat to high, add the green beans, and stir-fry for a few minutes. The goal is to get some color on the beans while keeping them crisp.
  4. Stir in soy sauce, sugar (if using), and salt. If you like your food spicy, this is the moment to sprinkle in some red pepper flakes.
  5. Serve hot, directly from the pan to the plate, ensuring every bite is infused with the rich, distinctive flavor of Red Palm Oil.
