Sesame Green Beans
April 26, 2008

This recipe interested me for its sheer simplicity and for its cooking method. My curiosity was enough that I was determined to make it as written-which meant resisting the urge, first of all, to add fresh garlic. I was not disappointed. While adding garlic here would seem obvious, I wanted something beyond the same ol' same ol'. This is simply wonderful--just as written. And as for the cooking method--it worked out perfectly and the beans were bright green, fresh and with a just right taste of sesame from the oil and seeds. I think adding garlic as so many others have done, would have totally negated the whole point of this dish, and would have masked that delicate sesame flavor. Add it if you like, but then these beans are still the same old green beans with garlic.
