Sesame Green Beans
Minoo prepared a second side dish to go with the pasta. This week’s recipes were mostly vegetables which is a good thing.
The Sesame Green Beans are aromatic with sesame oil and the sesame seeds add nuttiness and texture to this simple stir fry vegetable dish.
- 1 1/2 pounds green beans, washed and trimmed
- olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons or more sesame seeds (a handful)
- soy sauce to taste
