Some where I read that Japanese vegetables are rich in flavour and now I have my personal experience also. French beans are not exception.
I bought fresh French beans from the Hanamasa and just saute the French beans with garlic paste and other basic spices and the taste was superb. In my opinion beans and garlic is classic combination. It had been always my favorite; chapatti smeared with ghee or paratha along with big bowl of this recipe.
