Servings: 1


  • 3 pounds fresh green beans trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon (gluten-free) soy sauce
  • 2-3 stalks Green Garlic, thinly sliced diagonally
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Working in two batches, add the green beans and boil for 3 minutes.
  3. Immediately remove the beans from the pot to a strainer and rinse with cold water.
  4. Transfer the beans to a large bowl.
  5. Using the same boiling water that was used for the first batch, boil the second batch of green beans for 3 minutes, rinsing with cold water when done.
  6. Transfer to the large bowl of beans.
  7. Add the toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, green garlic, sliced almonds and toss until combined.
  8. Serve cold as a salad or warm as a side dish.



  • Ask your local produce seller for green garlic. I had to ask a manager who knew where to find it. If you can’t find it at your local produce store you can substitute a clove of regular garlic for 2 stalks of Green Garlic.
  • Also, make sure you use toasted sesame oil. It gives a stronger “sesame” flavor and allows you to use less oil than the untoasted variety.
