St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. So I have been thinking about some of my favorite "green" foods to share with you!
So let's get started with my all-time favorite way to eat green beans: Sesame Green Beans!
Many thanks to my Mother for sharing this recipe with me!
I think this might just be the first time that I am sharing a recipe for a vegetable! One of my goals this year has been to encourage Little Man (and the whole family!) to eat healthy. While he loves fruits, eating vegetables is a struggle in our household. So I began our vegetable journey with one of our family favorites. These sesame green beans are crunchy and tangy and sure to please! Plus super easy!
Sesame Green Beans
3/4 lb. fresh green beans (or 1 lb. frozen)
1/2 c. water
1 T. butter
1 T. soy sauce
2 tsp. sesame seeds, toasted
Toast sesame seeds in oven, watching carefully.
In a saucepan, bring beans and the water to a boil. Reduce heat and cook till crisp-tender. Drain.
Add butter, soy sauce, and sesame seeds. Toss to coat.
Little Man actually ate 3 (yes, three!) entire green beans. Not bad.
We have a rule when trying new foods, he has to eat "three" bites since he is 3 years old!
This is one vegetable I actually crave.
