Sesame-Soy Green Bean Sauté

Sesame-Soy Green Bean Sauté

I wanted a light and healthy side dish to pair with the Asian-style chicken I was making for dinner. I grabbed some green beans and simply sautéed them in sesame oil, crushed red pepper flakes, and black pepper. Once they were crisp-tender, I tossed in some minced garlic and soy sauce. Simple, quick, and tasty – my kind of side dish.

  1. Green beans are a favorite vegetable in my house, and the Asian flavors in this recipe sound delicious. I am crossing my fingers that you will post the chicken recipe, too!

  2. This looks delicious! I love green beans and sesame oil. I have been meaning to ask for a while but may I share some of your recipes on my Monday food posts? I would use my own photos and also words, while providing a link to your blog. Thanks for considering my request.

  3. Soy sauce is mentioned in the instructions but not in the ingredient list. Is it to taste? Or do you use a specific amount?
