This dish is delightfully different.  It takes the traditional green bean and gives it a twist with a slightly roasted flavor.  Still crisp to the bite, enjoy this crunchy side dish with fish or even beef.

Gather Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of green beans

  • 1 tablespoon of toasted sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon of black sesame seeds

  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground sea salt

Note: This recipe goes fast so leave it until last when cooking other dishes for your meal.  Also, have all your ingredients prepped and ready to go before heating pan.

Instructions:

  1. Prepare green beans by snapping or trimming off stalky ends.  Place in a colander and rinse well.   Return green beans to a cutting board and cut or snap in half to create bite-sized pieces.  Green beans are now ready to cook.

  2. Next heat 1 tablespoon sesame oil in large skillet or wok on medium-high heat.  When the oil is hot, add the green beans, stirring frequently to cook beans evenly for about 3 minutes.

  3. Add in sesame seeds and salt and stir-fry for another 1-2 minutes.

Note: Get your kids involved.  Have fun with your family and let your children help you snap the green bean ends off.
