Sesame Green Beans

The things you can do with green beans are endless! This simple dish is tasty both hot or cold.


3 c. snapped and cleaned green beans
1 chopped red pepper
1 tbsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. sesame seeds
½ c. peanuts (optional)


Chop the red pepper and break the green beans into one- to two-inch lengths. Sauté the green beans, red pepper, and peanuts in 1 tbsp. of sesame oil and 1 tbsp. of olive oil, stirring frequently, until the green beans are just soft but still crunchy (about 5-8 minutes over medium heat). Put the other tbsp. of olive oil into a small frying pan and heat on low for a couple of minutes. Add the sesame seeds and toast them, turning often, until they are just brown. Add the sesame seeds to the green beans and red peppers. That’s all folks.

Eat well, be well, live deliciously!
