I love to eat fresh vegetables, and to add a little unique flavor to a vegetable that I wouldn’t normally think of.  I love the combination of freshly cooked green beans with sliced almonds and sesame.  It is the perfect addition to your meal!
Asian Style Sesame Almond Green Beans
1 lb fresh green beans, ends trimmed
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced into little slivers the size of a dime
1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
Sea salt and Fresh ground pepper
In a large skillet, place green beans and 1/4 cup water over medium heat, and put the lid on it.  Allow the beans to steam until fork tender.
Drain the beans and set them aside.
Heat olive oil, sesame oil over medium heat.  Fry the sliced pieces of garlic on each side until golden brown and then add green beans back into the skillet a long with the almonds, sesame seeds, and some salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.  Stir over medium heat, and continue to cook until green beans are soft, but still firm.  Serve immediately.
