Magical Tahini Green Beans
Ingredients: (note – use organic whenever possible)
1 T sunflower seed oil
1 pound frozen Haricot Vert (French green beans)
3 T tahini
1 T sesame seeds (white or black, or a mixture)
pinch of sea salt
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sunflower seed oil and heat until shimmering.
Carefully add the Haricot Vert to the pan. Scatter the beans to cover in the hot oil and stir occasionally. Cook until the beans are beginning to brown on the edges – approximately 8-10 minutes. Remove from the pan to a shallow serving bowl.
Just prior to serving, drizzle the tahini over the Haricot Vert. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the top, along with a pinch of sea salt.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
