Do you ever eat something at a restaurant and find yourself unable to get it out of your head?
No? Just me?
Well, this is one of those dishes. After eating the most delicious green beans in my entire life at a brunch bridal shower a few weeks ago, I set out to recreate the dish at home.
I set to the task when visiting my mom and dad in Arizona a few weeks ago. And the beans got lots of wonderful feedback so I think we’ve got a new dish on permanent rotation.
SESAME GREEN BEANS
- Green beans (I used fresh, but I think you could use one of the frozen steam able bags, too)
- Sesame oil
- Olive oil
- Sesame seeds
- Soy sauce
- Cook green beans in any way you see fit. You could steam them, sautee them (which is what I did), or even boil them. Just don’t let them get too soggy.
- Strain, if necessary, and stir in 1/2 tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1 tsp oil. Depending on the amount of green beans cooked, use more to taste.
- Add sesame seeds to the bowl and toss until all the green beans are coated.
- Serve immediately.
The best part is that you can totally add a little of this and a little of this until you get the taste you love. I personally love the flavor of sesame oil, but it doesn’t take much.
