Haricots Verts in Ginger Sauce

I love ginger and green beans, so I knew this recipe would be great along side my dan dan noodles. They're very clean and fresh tasting.

Drop in green beans, boil for 3 minutes, drain and rinse with cold water.

Looks delicious and this sounds great with the black vinegar - I wouldn't have thought to add that!
