Sesame Green Beans



1 pound green beans
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (I like the Bartenura)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons soy sauce

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix beans with oil and sesame seeds. Spread out in a baking sheet with sides and roast for about 15 minutes. Mix together the balsamic vinegar, sugar and soy sauce. Drizzle over green beans.

  1. i also make this with a slight variation; i add mushrooms cut in half and1 large onion cut into moon shapes i also put fresh garlic cloves minced ,and black pepper to the above recipe and i omit the sugar ,you dont need it! al taam varaich ain lihitvakaioch!

    • I make them ahead of time. The are cooked until soft so its okay if they are reheated and a little softer. I undercook them a little bit so that when I reheat them they don’t get too mushy.

  2. You don’t cook the green beans before hand I take it….and do you heat up the balsamic vinegar, sugar and soy sauce before pouring it over? Thanks…love your website very helpful

    • You don’t heat that either; the only cooking is the roasting of the beans in the oven. Enjoy!
