Green Beans with Honey and Sesame Seeds

13 Jul

I love Asian Fusion. I think its because this past year I lived in China Town and my closest grocery stores were all Asian grocery stores. Whether or not that was the case, my roommates and I have found out honey goes well on EVERYTHING, including Asian dishes. We’ve made these beans with a butter-honey and slivered almond type of dressing, but in the spirit of our Asian Fusion dinner I decided to go with the sesame seeds.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 lb of green beans
  • 3 T butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2T honey
  • many sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  2. Once boiling, throw the green beans in and blanch them for about 3-5 minutes. Pour them out over a collander or seive and set aside to cool for a moment.
  3. In a pan over medium heat, warm the butter and garlic until melted. Add honey. Then, add green beans.
  4. Toss the green beans in the melted butter and honey mixture for several minutes. Once the mixture has covered the green beans, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Better yet, serve with scallops!
