Asian-themed recipes are a staple in our kitchen. Hardly a day goes by without a meal that has some type of Asian-inspired flavors and spices. We prepare favorite vegetables, like green beans, and quickly stir-fry them in a pan with five-spice powder, instantly transforming a plain dish into an amazing side with just one tablespoon. These five-spice green beans are quick, wonderfully healthy and accessible for the novice cook.
