What’s Cooking

Sesame Green Beans
Fresh green beans are just coming on the market and this is a very simple recipe that highlights them.

1 pound green beans
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Steam beans for 5 to 8 minutes, until tender but still crunchy.

Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet for a few minutes until aromatic. Watch closely to avoid burning.

Transfer the warm beans to a serving bowl. Toss with the lemon juice, sesame oil, toasted seeds, and salt and pepper to taste.

Yield: 4 servings
