Sesame Green Beans with Mushrooms and Chestnuts

Sesame Green Beans with Mushrooms and Chestnuts

by Pam on November 28, 2012

I wanted something light and simple to serve with an Asian inspired meal I was making for dinner.  I found this recipe on Taste of Home[1] that I adapted to suit my tastes.  It was a very quick side dish to make and it was so delicious.  I loved the combination of flavors and textures and we all thought the sauce was delicious.

Preheat the olive oil and sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the mushrooms to the HOT pan and let them sit for 2 minutes before flipping them to brown on the other side for 2 minutes. Add the minced garlic, green beans, and water chestnuts; season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Combine the water, soy sauce, sugar, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; mix well.  Pour the sauce into the pan and cook the green bean mixture for 3-4 minutes, or until the green beans and tender-crisp.  Remove from the heat and serve with sesame seeds sprinkled on top. Enjoy.
