You may have seen a picture of these in my Game of Thrones dinner night, and they were really tasty. I’m always looking for new takes on the veggies I eat all the time. Thank you Mayo Clinic. 🙂
1 pound green beans, stems trimmed
2 tsp olive oil
1 red bell, seeded & julienne
½ tsp chili paste or red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
· Cut the beans into 2-inch pieces. Bring a large saucepan ¾ full of water to a boil. Add the beans & cook until they turn bright green & are tender-crisp; 1 to 3 minutes. Drain the beans, and then plunge them into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain again & set aside.
· In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper & toss & stir for about 1 minute. Add the beans & sauté for 1 minute longer. Add the chili paste (red pepper flakes) & garlic & stir for 1 minute. The beans will be tender & bright green. Drizzle with the sesame oil & season with the salt & pepper. Serve immediately.
