I love Asian food. But between all of the lo meins and rice dishes, there are only so many starches I can handle. Enter the string bean. I decided to combine my recipes for Sesame Noodles and my normal green been recipe for this fusion dish — delish!

Serves 8-10.


2 lbs string beans
1/3 c toasted sesame oil
1/3 c soy sauce
3 Tbsp sugar
¼ c toasted slivered almonds


1. Prepare your string beans by rinsing and snapping the ends. Steam for
5-6 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Combine sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar. Pour over string beans.

3. Over a medium heat, toast your slivered almonds until lightly browned. Add right before serving.
Note: Like so many dishes, these string beans are best served hot, right after they are made. They can, however, also be served at room temperature.
