I lost 2 pounds this week. I was really hoping to lose at least 3 but I am happy with 2.
I thought I would share my all time favorite veggie recipe from Weight Watchers. Only 1 point (68 calories) per serving. Here it is....yummy!
Oriental Green Beans
1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
3 Tbl. soy sauce
1 Tbl. oriental sesame oil
1 tsp. granulated sugar
6 garlic cloves, minced
1. In a large pot of rapidly boiling water, cook green beans until just tender, 4-5 minutes.
2. While beans are cooking, in small bowl combine soy sauce, oil, and sugar; set aside.
3. Drain beans; set aside.
4. Spray wok or 10" skillet with nonstick cooking spray; place over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, 20-30 seconds. Add green beans; cook, stirring and turning constantly, until well coated, about 2 minutes.
5. Add soy sauce mixture; continue to stir and turn until most of the liquid is absorbed, 1-2 minutes.

I took this to Easter dinner a few years ago and it has become a family favorite. Some times I double the recipe and save the leftover for snacks when I need a little something.
Hope you Enjoy!
