These are a delicious and different way to prepare green beans. I made these for a dinner party, doubled the recipe and there was not a bean left.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with foil, spread beans on baking sheet.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt; Using hands, toss to coat evenly, and distribute in even layer.
  3. Roast in oven for 10 minutes.
  4. While roasting, combine garlic, ginger, honey, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in small bowl.
  5. Remove beans from oven. Coat beans evenly with the garlic/ginger mixture; redistribute in even layer.
  6. Return to oven and continue roasting until beans are dark golden brown in spots and starting to shrivel, 10-12 minutes longer.
  7. Adjust seasoning with salt if necessary, toss well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

This is an excellent recipe! I happened to be out of sesame seeds when I made this (I thought they were in the cabinet) but they still came out delicious! I also made this while my air conditioner was broken so in order to keep my house from getting too hot I stir-fried the beans and sauce in a large pot. I cooked them until they were shriveled with dark spots. They were perfect!

Yum! I used toasted sesame oil and it gave the beans such a great flavor. Can't wait to make these again.

Very tasty and easy to put together. Next time I think I'll make with more sauce/spice and fewer green beans.
