Green Beans with Sesame & Garlic

Green Beans with Sesame & Garlic created by KateL

These are green beans with attitude. I think I got the recipe from Vegetarian Times, and it's never missed yet when served alongside a nice piece of fish or tuna steak. I like to cook the beans early in the day so I can throw it together in a snap at mealtime. I also use more garlic.

    4 Stars, only because low-sodium-diet DH said there was too much salt, and we should cut it in half next time. Otherwise we enjoyed this dish very much: it was a great change of pace, and it went together quickly, once I trimmed the green beans. Made for Sept 2008 veg*n swap.

    Just had to comment on how wonderful these green beans are - they were a great complement to our dinner this evening. The garlic and sesame worked perfectly together! Thank you!
