  1. Heat a large skillet; add the 2 oils to infuse the flavours.   Add the green beans and saute until they begin to look cooked (about 5 minutes).
  2. Add the ginger, garlic, green onions, soya sauce, sugar and chile paste.   Cook for another 2-3 stirring frequently.   The garlic will be golden, the sauce will become sticky and coat the beans.
