Green Beans with Sesame Sauce - EZ

Carolyn Haas


This is from an international foods cookbook for kids. I substituted sesame oil for butter to update a bit from the original 1981 date! I think it's time to give this to my daughter so she can cook with her kiddo!

If you prefer to use fresh green beans, just add to the cooking time.
