Green Beans with Sesame Seeds
1 lb. green beans, trimmed and cut to 2 inch pieces
2 oz. Sesame seeds toasted
1 Tbsp. white sugar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
3 Tbsp. sake
Blanch green beans until they are crisp tender (about 5 minutes). Drain and put in water with ice cubes. Then transfer to a bowl of Dashi stock with soy sauce to soak.
Mortar and pestle the sesame seeds. Once they are in a paste, add sugar, soy sauce and sake. Drain the green beans and toss them with sauce. Delicious!
