The beans can be broken up and stir-fried or cooked like any other green bean. I was considering a stir-fry with the lemongrass, garlic, beans, and Asian pear. Asian pears are cool because they don’t get mushy when stir-fried. Think sweet, crisp water chestnuts.
I’ve decided, though, to poach my pears with lemongrass syrup. Here’s the recipe I have my eye on.

Enjoy your food!
