    MissJennifer's Note:

    I found this at and have made it a bunch of times this summer with beautiful green beans. Even my bf who doesn't care for green beans will eat this! The recipe says you can also try it with broccoli instead of the beans. (Sometimes I use more chicken broth, just depends on how fast you want them done, and more or less flavor.)

    1. 1
      Heat oil in large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add sesame seeds. When seeds start to darken, stir in green beans. Cook, stirring until the beans turn bright green. (I never notice a "bright green" color, I just cook about 10 minutes or so.).
    2. 2
      Pour in chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook until beans are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes. (I like mine much more done -- about 30 minutes!) Uncover and cook until liquid evaporates. You can serve these hot like normal, but I even like these babies cold! ;-).

      What a delicious way to serve green beans. The sesame seeds added a nice flavor to the beans, and it was so easy to prepare. Thank you for sharing your recipe,MissJennifer. Made for Spring 2014 Pick-A-Chef.

      5 stars, I used only the chicken stock and no olive oil to make this even healthier. It's great! very tasty and so easy, I drained them well and then added the toasted sesame seeds and the flavour jumps out at you. Please see my rating system: for such a simple recipe that can be made so heathily, with so little, for tons of flavour, it ticks ALL the right boxes. Therefore a wonderful 5 stars. Thanks!
