Green beans are such a healthy vegetable, full of iron, magnesium and many other minerals. They are a tasty summer treat as well and are great cooked only for a few minutes or steamed. Here’s a recipe you are going to really like, and it is best with fresh green beans.

Don’t use that frozen stuff, I don’t care what they say, you can never beat fresh vegetables regardless of what the food companies will tell you. Do NOT tail the beans, why should you?? Just cut a millimetre off near the stalk end.


2 teaspoons olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, crushed, peeled and finely sliced
1 large red capsicum (bell pepper)
250 grams mushrooms
200 grams green beans (fresh)
3 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon soy sauce


  • Top and don’t tail the beans, cut in half diagonally
  • Heat oil in a wok.
  • Add the garlic
  • Add the vegetables
  • Add the sesame seeds
  • Add the soy sauce
  • Stir constantly over heat for about 2 minutes until vegetables are all tender but still crunchy.
  • Serve at once with steamed jasmine rice.
