Really quick and very easy Really quick and very easy
Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb. green beans, trimmed
    1 tsp. salt
    1 tbsp. soy sauce or Braggs Liquid Aminos
    3 splashes of ginger juice OR 1/2 tsp. of freshly grated ginger root
    1/5 tbsp. butter, cubed
    1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame seeds
    1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar


Steam green beans for about 10 mins. When the beans are cooked through but still crisp, place in a serving bowl. Toss all other ingredients and serve. Just that easy... Enjoy!
I highly recommend the Braggs Liquid Amino Acids, taste just like soy sauce, but with way less sodium, give them a try!

    My hubby, who is not a big fan of any veggie that isn't a potato, loved these! I wound up steaming in the micro in a ziploc steam bag, then throwing the ingredients in and giving it a shake. I, too, didn't have fresh ginger and used ground..rather than use butter, I used sesame oil. very good! - 3/30/10

    This was great. Did it with canned green beans instead of fresh, but came out amazing. Went really well with steak, mushrooms, and onions. - 9/24/11
