Sesame green beans

 
Vegetable steamers are expanding metal baskets that hold veggies while hot water in the pan steams them. Put a steamer into a large saucepan. Add one inch of water to the pot and place veggies. Cover and steam over medium heat until the veggies are crisp, 3-6 minutes depending on the size.
 
What You'll Do: Serves 3-4
 
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1 (16-ounce) bag frozen green beans
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
-The toasted sesame oil is what gives boring frozen green beans some flavor.
Salt to taste
 
What You'll Do:
 

1. Toasting seeds brings out the flavor. Toast them, if you like, by putting the seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for a minute or so. Shake the pan a few times so the seeds toast evenly. When you start to smell them, they’re done. Remove from heat.

 
2. Put an inch of water into a large saucepan over medium heat. Place the vegetable steamer in the pan and pour in the beans. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes; stir the beans so they cook evenly. Cover and cook for a few minutes until all the beans are hot. Once they’re hot, they’re done – don’t overcook.
 
3. Using a hot pad, pull the vegetable steamer out of the pan and shake off any water over the sink. Empty the saucepan and wipe it with a clean towel.
 
4. Put the beans into the pan and stir in the sesame oil, sesame seeds, and salt to taste. Serve hot or at room temperature.
