sesame soy green beans with bell pepper

you’re going to kick yourself for not thinking of this first. it takes under ten minutes to prep and cook and it is deliciously simple.

however, i cannot take credit for this creation. a few years ago at the most meaty thanksgiving i have been to this was one of the only dishes i could eat, and i ate a ton of it. below is a rough recipe, though ratio is all you really need to know if you taste as you cook.

sesame soy green beans with bell pepper
makes 1 meal or 2 sides

1/2 large red bell pepper, thickly sliced
about 2 cups green beans with ends snapped off
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

you can also use a bell pepper to green bean ratio of 1 to 2 and use soy sauce to taste.

cook pepper and green beans together in an oiled skillet (use sesame if available) for about 3 minutes. add soy sauce and vinegar and stir vegetables to coat. taste and add more soy sauce if necessary. cook for another 2 or 3 minutes until cooked but still crisp. sprinkle with sesame seeds and toss.

delicious hot or chilled.
