Kung pao green beans are a sweet, spicy side that will liven up any meal. This recipe is nut-free, but it still has all the flavor you’d expect from a classic kung pao. If nut allergies aren’t a concern, sprinkle some chopped peanuts over your green beans to get that true, authentic taste.
As a proclaimed lover of vegetables, I can’t quite understand anyone over the age of seven wrinkling their nose at the sight of them. That being said, I have a few clients who fall into that category and it is my job to come up with recipes that will entice them into eating something green.
I’m not a parent, so I can’t imagine what it is like on a daily basis but I can tell you that once a week I find myself trying to figure out what I can cook for vegetable-hating clients that will actually end up on their plates. This one came to fruition solely based on the fact that one of my clients loves anything spicy. I figured if I disguised the flavor of the vegetable with chilies and garlic, maybe I’d have a hit on my hands.
