This simple dish takes green beans to a whole new level with the nutty sesame dressing. It is perfect for a packed lunch.


  • 200g green beans
  • 50g sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons</


Top and tail the green beans. Boil briskly for 2–3 minutes until softened, but make sure they still squeak when you bite them. Plunge them into ice cold water for 5 minutes to keep them vividly green and crisp. Roast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over a medium heat for 3–5 minutes. Drain the beans and pat dry with a tea towel. Dress them with the goma-dare and roasted sesame seeds.
