This dish is great with fresh, thin green beans, but you can also use frozen. Just make sure they are properly thawed and drained, or the frying pan will cool down and they will taste boiled, not fried. You can also use yellow beans.

    The combination of green beans and avocado is great! Thank you for the recipe.
    I like green beans very much. I'm avoiding fresh green beans when they are "out of season". Will say: I only eat them when I can get them fresh from the market, not when they are imported and all vitamins got lost on their way to supermarket. An alternative are frozen green beans.

    This is the best green bean recipe I have ever made. It was delicious. I used six scallions and one super large avacado. It was amazing.
