Do you have a recipe that you make on a regular basis and it just feels as if you have made this recipe for, well, forever? That’s this recipe. From this photo I know that I’ve been making it for at least 3 months – but I know that if feels like more. When I started purchasing bags of frozen green beans from Costco over winter, I knew that I needed to be more creative than my regular green beans – saute some garlic in olive oil, add frozen green beans, steam, then spash lemon juice. I love those green beans but when you’re eating the same veggie a couple (or more than a couple!) times a week, change is good! Here’s my recipe. Feel free to add more or less of any of the ingredients – it’s not really a recipe – it’s a throw together dish! Enjoy
2 cups frozen green beans
1 T rice vinegar (I’ve also used apple cider and been fine)
2-3 T soy sauce
2 tsp toasted sesame oil (feel free to leave out if you don’t have it)
1.5 T sesame seeds
1. Place frozen green beans in the hot saute pan. Cover with a lid and let steam, shaking or stirring occasionally until they are hot
2. Add the rice vinegar and soy sauce and let the sauce reduce for a minute or 2.
3. Drizzle the sesame oil and sesame seeds over the green beans. Pull from the heat and serve.
