I found this recipe online somewhere. I didn't realize until I was about to make it that the instructions mention soy sauce but there is none listed in the ingredients. I decided to use 1 tablespoon. I thought that 1/2 teaspoon of ginger sounded like a lot so I used about 1/8 teaspoon. These taste alright but not as good as I was hoping. Also, the sauce tends to end up in the bottom of the bowl instead of coating the beans and the beans were a little overcooked.
