Spicy Sesame String Beans

Spicy Sesame String Beans

Just like at a Chinese restaurant but something you could make at home, these string beans pack a spicy punch with lots of fresh flavor and they are so simple to make. I made this recipe without oil, but if you wanted it to taste more like something you’d order at a Chinese restaurant, feel free to sub the vegetable stock for a tablespoon of sesame oil.

Spicy Sesame String Beans

¼ cup low-sodium vegetable stock
1 tablespoon fresh minced ginger
4 scallions, sliced
12 oz. green beans or haricots verts, ends removed
1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
1 tablespoon low-sodium tamari
½ to 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
½ tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

In a wok or large skillet, heat the vegetable stock for a minute over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and scallions, sautéing for three minutes. Lower the heat to medium, add the green beans, garlic, tamari and red pepper flakes and sauté for five minutes, adding a splash of vegetable stock or water if it seems dry. When softened, turn off the heat, add the rice vinegar and toss; add the sesame seeds and toss again. Serve warm.
