Fresh sautéed Sesame Green Beans are a quick and easy side dish tossed in garlic and sesame seeds!
I first have got to apologize to the #SecretRecipeClub for being nearly a day late on my post. I can’t believe how fast the last month has gone by. I’ve been so extremely busy and have had virtually nothing but wedding on my mind. We’re down to 11 days! I can’t believe it!
Well after I freaked out and felt absolutely horrible this morning once I realized it was Group B’s reveal day and I left A Spoonful of Thyme without a feature… I had to hurry home after work to get this done. Well, then the guys decided it’s time to chop silage so I was outside helping with that and then had chores…. then… I finally got to work on this post!
I whipped up this fabulous side dish to supper… and actually made it into a main course for myself because I didn’t want to cook anything else. A Spoonful of Thyme indicates on her blog that she just couldn’t get enough of these Fresh Sesame Green Beans. I’d have to agree with her. I’ve made green beans in the steamer, boiled and even fried, but I had not sautéed them before. Why, I don’t know. In the original recipe, the green beans are tossed in sesame oil, but I sautéed mine in butter and then added some garlic as well. Devine! Seriously… slightly crunchy, salty and garlicy. Who could ask for anything better when eating veggies?!
