This comes from a high protein recipe book called Martini's and Whipped Cream. Hope you enjoy


  1. Boil or steam your string beans until cooked to your desired consistency--I use the steamer Put seeds in ungreased frying pan and heat for several minutes, stirring constantly until the seeds start to crackle.
  2. Place in mortar and crush.
  3. Add the soy sauce and vinegar and mi.
  4. Stir into cooked string beans and serve.

Instead of crushing the toasted sesame seeds, blend them whole into Tahini, along with soy sauce and vinegar. Easier, faster, and increased density of flavor.

Fabulous string beans, Tish! I didn't have a mortar so put half the seeds in the grinder for just a second and left the other half as is. I just love the fact that there's this much protein in my veggies, especially because I don't eat meat. The soy and vinegar gave it lots of flavor. I used rice wine vinegar and maybe next time I'll try reducing the vinegar a bit because I'm trying to watch my sodium intake. I don't think it would hurt this recipe a bit. Thanks for the great recipe!
