       Title: YARD-LONG BEANS AND WATER CHESTNUTS
  Categories: Vegetables, Chinese
       Yield: 4 Servings
  
       1 lb Yard-long beans
     1/3 c  Water chestnuts; thin sliced
       2 tb Butter
            Salt & pepper
       1 tb Parsley; finely chopped
  
   Yard-long beans are a great delicacy with their tender, string-less,
   quick-cooking qualities. They are an asset to any fast stir-fry dish
   paired with shrimp or beef. Or try them with water chestnuts in this
   manner.
   
   Trim ends from beans and cut in 1-inch lengths. Cook in a small
   amount of boiling salted water for 3 to 5 minutes, or just until
   tender; drain. Add water chestnuts, butter and salt and pepper to
   taste. Sprinkle with parsley. Makes about 4 servings.
