Green bean stir-fry is a nice and quick and very tasty side dish that compliment almost any main meal. I will give the recipe where sesame seeds and garlic gets added, there are so much you can do with beans.

I made this recipe for friends, I was not sure whether it would go down well as sesame seeds on beans might be odd if one prefers more plain traditional dishes. It went down well. I served it with chicken, roasted vegetables and a salad.

Stir-fried green beans with sesame seeds and garlic

Ingredients

– green beans 250g – 500g, depending on how many you want to make

– sesame seeds

– 1 clove garlic, crushed

– butter

– salt and pepper
Method

1. wash the green beans and cut off the tips

2. add water to the pan (this will help to cook them all soft, sometimes when just stir-frying the food burns before it is soft)

3. throw out water when beans becomes soft (not too soft otherwise it will mush and break apart when stir-frying)

4. add a lump of butter to stir fry

5. add crushed garlic (see my review on my Jamie Oliver garlic press)

6. add salt and pepper

7. when beans are ready (you will see the turn dark and have that roasted look about them) add the sesame seeds, stir for a while until they are roasted

This is a very quick side dish to complete any meal and a nice ‘gap’ filler on your plate. It presents beautifully as well. Dishes can become plain and boring very quickly, this adds a nice twist to the usual green beans in a plate and it tastes amazing.

Enjoy!
