Reviews for Garlic-Sesame Green Beans
"easy to prepare and delicious. Hubby asked for thirds! and he is not a big vegetable eater.."
"I made these last night and they were so good. I cooked the beans on the stove. Use the same ingredients - great !"
"I prepared these delicious green beans tonight and we loved them. This is such an easy recipe. I cooked the beans 7 minutes in boiling water. I followed the recipe directions but made a couple of minor changes. I omitted the sesame oil since I didn't have any and chopped a little sweet onion instead of a shallot. I did pare the recipe down for the two of us. We will definitely have this delicious recipe again. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor"
