If you're on the hunt for a quick and delectable side dish or a tasty addition to your lunchbox, look no further! Our Roasted Green Beans with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds recipe is here to tantalise your taste buds with its delightful Asian-inspired flavours. It pairs perfectly with our sensational vegan Thai Red Curry, making it an ideal companion for your next meal.
Let's gather the ingredients and get started:
200-300g fine green beans
1 tablespoon raw sesame seeds
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
Salt, to taste (we recommend trying smoked salt for an extra kick)
Optional: 1 teaspoon chopped garlic, 1 teaspoon maple syrup
Begin by whisking together the extra-virgin olive oil, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil in a bowl. This mixture will infuse the green beans with incredible flavors.
Place the green beans in the bowl with the sauce and toss them until they are evenly coated. If you're opting for the additional ingredients of chopped garlic and/or maple syrup, now's the perfect time to add them to the mix for an extra layer of taste.
Preheat your oven to 200°C (392°F) and prepare a baking sheet by spraying it with non-stick spray.
Spread the marinated green beans out on the baking sheet, ensuring they are in a single layer to promote even roasting.
Roast the green beans in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, allowing them to cook and develop a delightful texture.
While the green beans are roasting, take a minute or two to toast the raw sesame seeds. Simply heat them in a dry pan until they start to lightly brown, releasing their aromatic flavors.
After the initial 10 minutes of roasting, take the green beans out of the oven and flip them over to ensure even cooking. Return them to the oven for another 10 minutes.
Your roasted green beans are done when they are tender and have developed a beautiful, slightly browned appearance.
Arrange the perfectly roasted green beans on a serving plate, and generously sprinkle them with the toasted sesame seeds for an added crunch and nutty taste.
For a refreshing finish, squeeze a splash of lime over the green beans to enhance their flavour and provide a tangy twist.
Now, your mouth-watering Roasted Sesame & Soy Green Beans are ready to be served! Enjoy them hot alongside our sensational Korean Style Tofu Noodles for a delightful Asian culinary experience that brings out the best in both dishes.
