Toasted sesame oil takes everyday green beans up a level.


Green Beans with Sesame Seeds

  • 1 pound green beans

  • 1 pound wax or yellow beans

  • 1 tablespoon Gefen Canola Oil

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided

  • Haddar Kosher or sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons white sesame seeds, such as Gefen

  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds


Prepare the Green Beans with Sesame Seeds


Trim ends off beans and cut into bite-size pieces. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add beans and cook just until the color brightens and the beans are just softening slightly – about three to five minutes. Drain immediately and run beans under cold water to stop the cooking. Drain well and pat dry with paper towels.


Heat canola oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add half the toasted sesame oil as well as the beans, and stir-fry on medium-high heat for two minutes, constantly moving them as they cook. Add the rest of the sesame oil, salt, and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper. Toss to coat beans, and add sesame seeds. Stir and serve warm or at room temperature.
