Sesame Green Beans


                   I love green beans and this is my go to and favorite way  to eat green beans.
                   I make this exact recipe with asparagus, as well. Nothing fancy just fast, and
                   easy and very tasty. I hope you give them a try and let me know what you think.

                                                                   Sesame Green Beans

                                                                   1 pound green beans, trimmed
                                                                   1 tablespoon sesame oil
                                                                   1 tablespoon olive oil
                                                                   2 to 3 tablespoons soy sauce
                                                                   2 garlic cloves, minced
                                                                   1 tablespoon sesame seeds

              In a large skillet heat olive oil and sesame oil. Trim and wash green beans and
              place in the pan, stir well. Add soy sauce, garlic and sesame seeds and cook
              for about 10 minutes or until tender.

             Note - I like to add red pepper flakes in this as well.

  3. We are big green beans fans, too! The classic garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper gets boring, so I can't wait to mix it up with this version!

  5. I typically make green beans at dinner and my kids want no part of it - can't say I blame them because they are really just steamed and bland. This recipe looks great and I will most definitely be trying it to spruce up our boring veggies!
