Green Beans with Peanut Sauce

Here’s a different one, for me at least. I didn’t measure a whole bunch so I’ll try to approximate here.

Green Beans with Peanut Sauce

  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 pound green beans
  • 2 tsp oil

Mix everything but the green beans and oil. I toasted the sesame seeds by heating a dry frying pan and toasting them that way

Heat the oil and fry the green beans quickly, until just crisp-tender. I used frozen green beans and they came out good, although I’m sure fresh ones would be better. Mix the beans with the other ingredients and serve.


They had a nice Asian sort of flavor with the peanut butter and sesame seeds. I’d do maybe a little more soy sauce and garlic next time. I used chunky peanut butter by the way because I bought some by accident and the girls don’t like it. I think it would be good with either.
