This simple Sesame Green Beans recipe is delicious and light. It is so tasty that even the pickiest kid will eat them.


1 1/2 pounds of green beans washed and trimmed.

1 Tbsp. Canola oil. Pour around the pan in one slow turn.

1 tsp. Dark sesame oil, several drops, or a drizzle.

½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

2 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds (one handful)

Kosher or pink salt to taste.


Steam green beans covered in one-half-inch boiling water for 2 minutes. Transfer beans to a colander and run under cold water. Drain well.

Heat a wok-shaped skillet or large nonstick frying pan over high heat. Go around the pan with canola oil once and add several drops of sesame oil.

Add the crushed pepper flakes.

The pan will smoke.

Add beans and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Add sesame seeds and coarse salt and toss to coat beans evenly.
