Sesame Green Beans

Sesame Green BeansI recently had some sesame green beans while eating dinner at a friends house. I loved the beans and wanted to re-create them at home. My girlfriend was out of town on a much needed vacation so I looked online to find a similar recipe. I chose this Martha Stewart recipe because it seemed similar to the one my friend made. When I prepared the sauce, it seemed too tangy so I added some soy sauce to mellow out the flavor and it tasted much better. The side dish was simple to make and it paired nicely with the Garlic-Ginger Chicken Thighs and Carrot-Ginger Rice.

Sesame Green Beans

Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook for 4-5 minutes or until just tender. Drain the water.

While the beans are cooking, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sesame seeds together and mix until well combined. Add the mixture to the cooked & drained green beans and toss to coat evenly. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste and serve immediately. Enjoy.
