Sesame Garlic Green Beans
the recipe is my own
1/2 lb fresh green beans
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
In a medium saucepan bring 2 quarts of water to a boil. Add the green beans and blanch for 3-4 minutes, or until the beans are a uniform bright green color. Immediately strain and rinse with cold water.
In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil until near smoking. Add the garlic, green beans and soy sauce. Saute over high heat for 3-4 minutes or until the garlic is browned and the green beans begin to blister. Remove from heat.
Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds to serve.
Quick, simple, and full of flavor. You can't get much better than that.
