Broiled or Grilled Sesame Green Beans

Had to try these Sesame Green Beans as soon as I saw them, they're super simple and I always have a bottle of sesame oil handy in the fridge. The sesame and lemon flavors play very well together. I loved cooking them under the broiler, that was a new technique to me and it only took a few minutes. You might want to tuck this one away for fresh beans from the garden folks, summer's coming-I promise:@)
 Cooking outdoors? Use your grill pan/wok and make these on the grill, they'd be great!

 Sesame Green Beans-from A Spoonful of Thyme
1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
2 tsp oil-I used vegetable, Kate used canola
1 tsp Asian sesame oil
S&P
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 Tblsp toasted sesame seeds-I cut back
  1. Mix oils and beans on baking sheet. Spread into one layer and sprinkle with S&P.
  2. Broil on rack in highest slot for 3 minutes. Stir and broil for another 2-3 minutes or until crisp-tender. (I set the broiler temperature to medium-high.)
  3. Mix with lemon juice and sesame seeds-serve and enjoy!
Try something new and have a happy day:@)
