Dress up fresh or frozen green beans with red pepper, garlic, and peanuts, for a great, Asian cuisine-inspired side dish that makes an ideal side dish for Shabbat or holiday meals.
Tip: If you're using very fresh, thin green beans, you can skip the steaming step -- simply saute them with the onions, peppers, and peanuts until they're bright green and crisp-tender.

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, chopped
