Spicy Ginger Green Beans

I really have come to love preparing vegetables once I learned how to add more flavor without additional fat.  Green beans are one of my favorite veggies, as it is right up there with broccoli.  I like spice but often pepper type spice, but this dish adds a different type of spice using fresh ginger. Ginger has a host of health benefits, along with packing a perfect punch in this dish accented with fresh tarragon. Just delish when coming out of the oven crispy!

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
3/4 tsp salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp fresh tarragon, minced
1 lb fresh green beans, ends trimmed
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add beans and toss to coat.

Transfer to a baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 16-20 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with ginger and toss.
