Spicy Sesame Green Beans


Simple and delicious, this is another one of my easy recipes that requires just a few ingredients and is ready to go in less than 10 minutes! It tastes better than take-out, I promise!


6 oz. fresh or frozen green beans
1 Tbsp roasted sesame seeds
1 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp red pepper flakes

Add green beans, sesame oil, and olive oil to a sauté pan on low-medium heat. Add in spices and sesame seeds. If using frozen beans, sauté for 10 minutes. If using fresh, sauté for 5-6 minutes, or until thoroughly warmed. The beans should still be crunchy!

A little bit of sesame oil goes a long way! If you want an even bolder taste, omit the olive oil, and add another tsp of sesame oil. For a pretty presentation, sprinkle sesame seeds on top. I love these beans on top of brown rice or quinoa. Let me know how you like this recipe!
