Watch Victoria Dwek as she perfects the ultimate side dish: The Smoky String Bean

 

One-Pan Glazed Green Beans


When we were working on Everyday Secret Restaurant recipes, Leah Schapira told me that one of her friends kept asking for the recipe for the green beans at one particular Manhattan restaurant. Though I didn’t ask for the recipe (I preferred a different dish there), I did finally get to taste the green beans during visit soon after. And though I liked the smoky, charred flavor, I didn’t like that they were doused in a sweet sauce that likely contained lots of sugar. This version is both light and perfect.

 

Main ingredients
2 pounds green beans (or a combination of green and yellow wax beans)
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger (or 3 cubes Gefen Frozen Ginger)
2 tablespoons soy or tamari sauce
2 teaspoons Gefen Sesame Oil
2 teaspoons Gefen Honey
1 teaspoon salt
coarse black pepper, to taste

 

Optional garnishes
crushed red pepper flakes (for additional heat)
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

 


Yield: 4 (6-ounce) servings
