Guys. I dropped the ball last week. I didn’t post a recipe so I’m going to fit two in this week. Starting with sesame green beans. This is one of my favourite holiday side dishes. You know, since everyone knows that March 2 is that time of year that friends and family get together to share what they are thankful for. Or something…
I decided to swap out the canola oil in the recipe for coconut oil because it is so delicious and supposedly good for you. These are good as a side dish but also to beef (bean) up your salads.
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 lb. fresh green beans
1 tbsp. low sodium tamari
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Heat up the coconut oil and the sesame oil in a frying pan. Place the whole green beans into the skillet. Stir the beans to coat with the oil. Cook until the beans are bright green, softening and slightly browned. That will take about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat stir in the tamari. Let the beans sit for about 5 minutes, covered. Stir in sesame seeds then serve.
