Peel garlic and ginger. Smash garlic. Trim scallions and cut into 2"
lengths (don't be fancy, the next step is a food processor). Place garlic,
ginger, and scallions into a food processor and process until finely
chopped. Remove to a 14x11x2" dish. Add oil and pepper flakes. Cook in
microwave, uncovered, at 100% for 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in remaining ingredients, tossing gently to coat green beans. Cook, uncovered, at 100% for 10-15 minutes, stirring 4-5 times. Serve hot or cold.
Notes: This recipe takes only a tablespoon of oil for a pound of green
beans. I have used half that with good success.
