Sweet, savory and spicy Southeast Asian flavors give this green bean side plenty of character. Chili-garlic sauce adds both garlic pungency and spicy heat. Use however much you’d like to achieve the kick you’re looking for (and you can always stir in more at the end).

Is this canned coconut milk? (Or the kind you drink?)

Lynn C.

Hi Tara -

Canned coconut milk is what we're calling for here. We will indicate "coconut water" if we mean the kind you drink. Hope that helps clear it up!

I saved this to 'my clipboard' but can't locate the clipboard!!! HELP!

Lynn C.

Hi Carolyn -

The clipboard is not a feature on our website, but a special location in your computer's memory that temporarily stores cut or copied data from a document. Once, something is stored in the clipboard, it can then be pasted to a new location. For our website, that particular feature allows people to easily copy and paste the ingredients list without having to do much work at all. If you'd like to save the whole recipe, you can hit the heart next to the word "FAVORITE" on the upper left hand side of the recipe (under the title), which will save this to your favorites. You can locate these recipes under your account, which is accessed by clicking the word "ACCOUNT" on the upper right hand side of the page (next to the magnifying glass). Hope that helps!
