Sesame Green Beans

In my opinion, green beans can be pretty boring. But, they are easy to grow in the garden, so we usually have a lot of them. This is an easy and tasty way of preparing them. It went well with the teriyaki grilled chicken & brown rice we had for dinner last night.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen green beans, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add sesame seeds. When seeds start to darken, stir in garlic and green beans. Cook, stirring, until the beans turn bright green.
  2. Pour in remaining ingredients. Cover and cook until beans are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid evaporates.
Serves 8 people who aren't green bean fanatics. Six people otherwise.
