  26. I’m very boring when it comes to my veggies. I like them boiled/steamed and that is it. That’s why I’m happy to see your green bean dish. It looks so good I’m considering making it next time.

    my version on this is simpler-only garlic and dried anchovies or fresh prawns with cut chili, but yours has quite a variety of spices added/.. great and easy to try.
