There is a kebab shop in Charlottesville called Sticks and they make great sides that include Sesame Beans. I love them, and decided I had to make my own version to have any time. You can use fresh or frozen green beans for this recipe; haricot verts work well, too! It only gets better as it sits, so it's great (and convenient!) to make a day or two in advance. —Dyan Carlson, Kents Store, Virginia
