Sesame Green Beans

Have I mentioned that I always have a hard time coming up with side dishes? I think its partially because growing up side dishes always equaled a starch plus a vegetable. When I came across the recipe for Cashew Beef, Taste of Home was kind enough to provide me with a suggested side dish.

Ingredients:
    • 1 lb. green beans
    • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
    • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
    • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
    • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
    • 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
    • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 425. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Combine the green beans and red pepper in a medium bowl. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and rice wine vinegar. Toss to coat.
3. Bake for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

I thought these had a great flavor and went together perfectly with the Cashew Beef.
