Does anyone else do, like, light meal planning? I have a tendency to make like 2 or 3 veggie dishes at the beginning of the week that I can just throw into a to-go container, then into the fridge, and just grab on my way out the door.
I have found that these sesame green beans make a great addition to my lunches, and they’re healthy. I don’t necessarily cook with a lot of veggies for dinner all the time so I try to make an effort for lunches. These are quite tasty, and my coworkers have been envious on more than one occasion
Green beans are a great food to feed to kids. They’re not overly strong in flavor, and they have some good nutrients for those growing bodies. This recipe would be great for kiddos! lessen the spice if you or your kids are sensitive to it.
- 8 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon miso paste
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger root
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
- Place the green beans into a steamer insert and set in a pot over one inch of water. Bring to a boil, cover and steam for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer beans to a serving bowl.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, miso paste, red pepper flakes, garlic and ginger. Pour over the green beans and toss to coat. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top
