Coconut Green Beans

Coconut was never my favorite.  If a recipe called for coconut, I would just leave it out. Then I met my Handsome Husband.  He loves coconut! In my heart’s desire to please him, I started adding a little coconut, then a little more.  Now I’ve grown to love it!  It’s especially tasty in this simple stir fry.  Hope you love it too!
